Government Grants for Digital Transformation for Local SMEs

Capability Development Grant (CDG)

The Capability Development Grant (CDG) aims to support SMEs to scale up business capabilities and ensure business sustainability . You can take on projects in areas like product development, human capital development, business processes enhancements for productivity and business model transformation. The grant defrays up to 70 percent* of qualifying project costs such as consultancy, training, certification and equipment costs.

The application requirements for smaller scale projects, for grant support of S$30,000 or less has also been simplified. You can look forward to more streamlined application forms and documentation requirements.

* SPRING’s enhanced funding support of up to 70% would be effective for three years until 31 March 2018.
