Each company supported by ESG is subjected to an annual grant cap of S$30,000 for solutions supported by ESG, starting on 1 April and ending on 31 March the following year.
Companies that have fully utilised their grant caps will not be eligible for further support within the validity period of the grant cap, and may then apply for new solutions at the next period when the grant caps are refreshed. Companies are encouraged to plan the use of the PSG for their purchases.
Applications are processed within 4-6 weeks from the submission of all required information.
Companies are strongly encouraged to submit their applications ahead of time to account for the application outcome and/or processing duration required.
Once an application has been submitted, companies may choose to proceed with the project and purchase the equipment/IT solution before the application outcome. However, you will not be able to claim subsequently if the application is unsuccessful.
We are receiving a high volume of applications for COVID-19 support solutions and we expect applications to be processed within 6–8 weeks from the submission of all required information.
Please note that additional time may incur if further clarifications are required by the processing officers, upon which they would reach out to you for clarifications.
Applications for COVID-19 support solutions will be assessed as long as they are submitted before 31 December 2020.
Business Grants Portal (BGP) is a one-stop portal for businesses to apply for government grants. This paperless system allows entities to find the grants they need with ease, enjoy a convenient form completion process, and reduce the time spent on applications.
If the company has yet to register for a CorpPass Administrator account, please visit www.corppass.gov.sg. After successful registration, users need to be assigned the e-Service access to the BGP in order to submit their grant application.
An email will be sent to the company’s contact person with the status of the submitted grant application.
Alternatively, Applicants may log in to the BGP. Under the “My Applications” section, they can view the status of their grant application by toggling between the tabs (Drafts/Processing/Actions Required/ Completed).
Reminder emails will also be sent when the application is returned for further clarifications. Applicants may make the necessary clarifications via BGP. Inactive applications may be withdrawn by ESG.
Any personnel assigned as a BGP user in the company and given a Preparer or Acceptor role by the company’s CorpPass Administrator can edit and submit the grant application. Contact details of the new user should be updated in the BGP.
If the application is currently reworked to you for updates, you may withdraw the application and submit a fresh one with the correct information.
To notify ESG to withdraw the application if it is being processed, please write in to email@example.com for an Application Withdrawal and you will be sent further instructions.

Claims are processed within 4-6 weeks from the submission of all required information.

Disbursement of the PSG grant will be credited directly to the company’s bank account through GIRO.

For multiple claims, the GIRO form is only required during the submission of the first claim.
