MP Faisal Manap

Mr Muhamad Faisal Bin Abdul Manap asked the Minister for National Development (a) between January 2022 and June 2022, how many Malay households have moved from 1- and 2-room HDB public rental flats and successfully become homeowners of HDB flats; (b) between June 2021 and June 2022, how many Malay households have relinquished their HDB flat ownership and applied for HDB public rental flats; and (c) how many Malay households are living in 1- and 2-room HDB public rental flats as of 30 June 2022.

Mr Desmond Lee: Between January 2022 and June 2022, about 140 Malay public rental households successfully achieved home ownership and bought their own HDB flats.

Between June 2021 and June 2022, about 70 Malay households relinquished their HDB flat ownership and applied successfully for a public rental flat.

As at 30 June 2022, there are about 17,600 Malay households living in public rental flats.

We will continue to work closely with MSF’s ComLink initiative, other social agencies and community partners, to uplift public rental households and support them on their journey towards home ownership.
