[Updated on 24 May 2022]
Following the adjustment in Singapore’s Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (DORSCON) status on 26 April 2022, and extensive easing of community and border measures, MSF and NCSS have reviewed and decided to close all TCF COVID-19 relief schemes with immediate effect from 24 May 2022. Applicants who had been certified as COVID-positive before 24 May 2022 can still apply. Please refer to the schemes below for more information.
*Due to high volume of applications, we seek applicants’ understanding that the processing time is expected to take longer, up to four months for schemes which require organisational endorsement. This is subject to submission of all necessary supporting documents, and could take longer if more clarifications are required. Applicants will be notified of the results regardless of the outcome.
The Courage Fund was first established in 2003 when Singapore was hit by the SARS outbreak. Fellow Singaporeans donated generously to the Fund to support those who were affected by the outbreak. In this same spirit of uniting the community to support one another through difficult times, Community Chest* has rallied the community to provide relief and support to those affected by the current COVID-19 situation.
*Donations received for The Courage Fund are under the NCSS Charitable Fund, which is an institution of Public Character (IPC) under the Charities Act (Chapter 37) and comprises all the charitable activities of NCSS, including the Community Chest.
