HDB: Housing Subsidies Withheld for PRs

For PRs married to a Singapore citizen, HDB is going to withhold $10,000 of such couples’ housing subsidies when purchasing a resale flat in an attempt to encourage PRs to take up citizenship.

Alternatively, they’ll have to pay a $10,000 premium when buying a new HDB flat. The money will be returned once the PR takes up citizenship or the couple produces a Singaporean child.
