Building Drainage System Repair Subsidy Scheme

In response to the rising public concerns on defective drains amid the COVID-19 pandemic and since defective drains and drains not properly sanitised will affect occupants’ health and environmental hygiene, the Financial Secretary announced in the “2021-2022 Budget” on 24 February 2021 that the government would reserve HK$1 billion and partner with the Urban Renewal Authority (“URA”) to implement the “Building Drainage System Repair Subsidy Scheme” (this Scheme) to provide technical and financial support to owners of aged private residential or composite buildings with a relatively low average annual rateable value and to assist them to conduct investigation, repair, rectification and/or improvement works for drains of the buildings. This Scheme is currently accepting applications.
