You and your community play an important role in the creation of a true Greenprint. We have set up the 'HDB Greenprint Fund' to support and fund the development and implementation of Green Solutions within the precinct. If you have great ideas to achieve savings in water or electricity usage, increase recycling rates, reduce heat in the environment, improve community bonding, and the quality of living our living environment, we want to hear from you. Your solutions can fall under any of these categories:
Smart and Sustainable Solutions should be new and original, encompass workable or implementable products, systems, processes, or work methodologies. Remember that these are for implementation within the Teck Ghee Community.
The HDB Greenprint Fund will fund and support test-bedding of Smart and Sustainable Solutions and implementations within the neighbourhood in Teck Ghee, subject to a cap of S$100,000 per application.
In the Greenprint Fund, we will disburse the fund through reimbursement of the total qualifying cost incurred in the development or test-bedding process.
Qualifying costs refer to costs associated with the following categories:
(Note: Reimbursement of qualifying costs is subject to HDB’s discretion and approval. Goods receipts would be required as supporting documents for the reimbursements. The documents and claims would be subjected to audits and checks. Refer to the application form for further details)
Upon approval of application, the project shall commence and be completed within 12 months (qualifying period). During the qualifying period, applicants will be required to submit progress reports to us for updates and assessment.
To co-create original and innovative solutions with the public to promote green living, we held our first HDB Greenprint Fund Grant Call on 20 February 2013. We received a total of 31 proposals and implemented and completed 3 of them at our pilot neighbourhood at Yuhua. The projects are:
Ducted System LED Light for Common Areas
Community Parklets (mini parks) at HDB Common Areas
Community Farming – ‘Hobby Farming’
