Application information

The application window has not opened yet.

When it does, applicants can apply for only one flat type/ category in one town under either the BTO or SBF exercise.

Applicants who wish to take up an HDB housing loan for their flat purchase need to produce a valid HDB Loan Eligibility (HLE) letter when they book a flat, except for young couples who are eligible for deferment of income assessment.

Flat buyers are advised to take the estimated project completion timelines into consideration before deciding to submit an application.

Those who have urgent housing needs could consider purchasing an HDB flat in the resale market instead.

When's the next launch?

The next launch after May will take place in August.

There will be flats offered from five estates: Hougang, Jurong East, Kallang Whampoa, Queenstown and Tampines.
