Friends of Our Heartlands
Announced by Minister for National Development, Mr Lawrence Wong, at the launch of HDB Community Week 2017, ‘Friends of Our Heartlands’ is a consolidation of our volunteer networks.
Under the rebranded network, volunteers will have more opportunities to participate in a wide range of community projects. You can choose how you wish to contribute to the community under 3 tracks:
- Cultivate better HDB living
- Activate our HDB spaces
- Facilitate community conversations and help their communities build consensus on estate matters

Friendly Faces, Lively Places Fund
Launched in 2016, the Friendly Faces, Lively Places Fund provides funding for our residents to initiate community-driven projects at HDB spaces. The fund provides up to $10,000 per project, and more than 18 projects have been implemented across the heartlands.
Read on to find out how HDB community spaces have been enlivened by some of these interesting projects initiated by our residents.
