The Construction Industry Council (CIC) announces that the second round of the Construction Industry “Anti-epidemic Fund” (the Fund) provided by the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region is open for applications from workers today and will end on 31 August 2020.
The Legislative Council Finance Committee approved the funding application for the second round of the "Anti-epidemic Fund", of which approximately HK$4.3billion will benefit frontline workers and companies in the construction industry. As an executive unit commissioned by the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, the CIC aims to start disbursing the second round of funds within a short period of time so that the subsidies will swiftly be disbursed to the workers and companies. The application process will be as simple as possible.
Over 530,000 workers will benefit from the second round of Anti-epidemic Fund. Applicants must be registered construction workers, and hold valid registration cards in between the period of 1 January 2019 to 8 April 2020 under the Construction Workers Registration Ordinance (Cap. 583) or under designated Construction Registration Ordinances (holding relevant documents). For workers who granted the first round of the "Anti-epidemic Fund", their application details will be carried over to the second round of the Fund and they do not need to submit separate applications. Besides, more than 30,000 companies in the industry will benefit from the second round of the Fund.
The Anti-epidemic Fund (Fund) set up by the HKSAR government is committed to supporting the construction industry to fight against the virus by improving the anti-contagion measures at construction sites and strengthening the workers' personal protective equipment. The Construction Industry Council (CIC) co-ordinates and manages the subsidy in relation to construction industry.
