The MENDAKI-MUIS Preschool Grant (MMPG) is targeted to low-income families with children below 6 years old who are enrolled in preschool. It aims to lower the cost barriers for entry to preschool, and assist mothers to return to and remain in formal employment. Beyond that, MMPG encourages parents to cultivate a habit of saving for their children’s education.
Through a dollar-a-day saving in the Child Development Co-Savings Account (CDA), MMPG will co-match this saving, which will be capped at $30 per month. These will be further co-matched by government, and parents can maximise the CDA benefits to pay for their child preschool fees, medical and developmental needs.
April 2020 to Jan 2023.
Application received will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Our officers may contact families for further assessment of the eligibility criteria. Families will be notified through email/Whatsapp on the outcome of the application.
