The three-year Cash Allowance Trial Scheme (CATS), administered by the Housing Department (HD), aims to alleviate the difficulties on livelihood faced by grassroots families who have been waiting for public rental housing (PRH) for a prolonged period of time.
It is a criminal offence for the applicant and/or his/her family member(s) to wilfully provide false information or omit certain information in order to obtain the cash allowance by deception.
Due to the large volume of Application Forms received, the process may take some time. The Cash Allowance Office of the Housing Department (the Office) is now stepping up to vet the applications, and will issue the “Notification of Application Results” to the applicants after the completion of vetting. Thank you for your patience.
If the applicant has not received an acknowledgement SMS or an “Acknowledgement of Receipt of Application” from the Office one month after submission of the Application Form, he/she may contact the Office for enquiries.
