Productivity Solutions Grant

Productivity Solutions Grant

Local SMEs can apply for BCA's Productivity Solutions Grant (PSG) to co-fund up to 70% of the qualifying costs of adopting pre-approved digital solutions under the Construction and Facilities Management Industry Digital Plan (IDP). These Building & Construction sector-specific solutions have been assessed by IMDA to be effective, market-tested and cost-effective (Click here for latest list of solutions).

Firms may also find the non sector-specific solutions, which are supported by Enterprise Singapore for SMEs, useful for improving productivity. These are listed here and include solutions such as Fleet Safety and Fleet Management Systems.

SMEs can make multiple PSG applications for these solutions from 30 Apr 2020 to 31 Jan 2023, subject to a funding cap of $30,000 per firm. However, please note the following:
- Each firm may not apply for the same solution more than once
- Multiple Licences under the same Application must start on the same date

As BCA’s Productivity Solutions Grant (PSG) will end on 31 January 2023, please submit all application and supporting documents on or before 31 January 2023 for your application to be considered.

The enhanced support level of 80% has ended on 31 March 2022. The maximum support level is at 70% from 1 April 2022. As announced at Budget 2022, employers eligible for the SkillsFuture Enterprise Credit (SFEC) can also qualify for additional subsidies under the scheme.
