I’ve never tried skydiving. I guess it’s fun and exciting. But only if you’ve got a parachute strapped to your back when you jump out that plane. Buying a HDB flat is like skydiving. The parachute is the CPF Housing Grant. With it, what is usually the biggest purchase of your life can be a fun and exciting adventure. Without it, you’ve pretty much made your last decision in life, and it was the wrong one.

The CPF Housing Grant can seem like quite a tricky thing to understand, but we at MoneySmart are here to make life easier for you. Whether you’re applying as a family or as a single, here are the CPF Housing Grants that will help make your HDB purchase safe and enjoyable. Like skydiving.

I am the poster boy for reinventing one's self. I've been a broadcast journalist, technical writer, banking customer service officer and a Catholic friar. My life experiences have made me the most cynical idealist you'll ever meet, which is why I'm also the co-founder of a local pop culture website. I believe ignorance is not bliss, and that money is the root of all evil only if you allow it to be.
