The Urban Renewal Project Rescue Fund

The Urban Renewal Project Rescue Fund ("PRF") aims to provide financial assistance to the direct stakeholders (such as residents) who are in need of urgent relief as a result of fire, flooding, landslide, typhoon, other natural disasters or due to mishaps at the common areas/parts within the commenced redevelopment project sites under the Urban Renewal Authority ("URA"). Financial assistance provided by the PRF is intended for relief rather than compensation. The URA reserves the right not to release the relevant funding to the applicant if deemed necessary and appropriate, and the decision of the URA shall be final.
