8,000 flat owners stand to benefit from Step-Up grant
Ms Angela Zeng will be one of 8,000 owners of two-room Housing Board flats across the country who can benefit from a new "Step-Up" grant announced by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Sunday.
The grant targets low-income families currently staying in two- roomers who need a hand in upgrading to a three-room unit.
Home for 32-year-old Ms Zeng, who is divorced, and her two children is currently a two- room flat in Toa Payoh which she bought in the resale market.
All three sleep in the flat's only bedroom: She sleeps on a mattress on the floor, while her children, aged eight and 10, use a bunk bed.
