Thousands of families living in public rental flats have became HDB homeowners in recent years. This highlights that it is possible to upgrade from renting a public rental flat to owning an HDB property.
Those currently living in HDB rental flats can lean on two main assistance schemes:
- Enhanced CPF Housing Grants (EHG)
- Fresh Start Housing Scheme (Fresh Start).
