Matching Grant Scheme

Matching Grant Scheme

The Government has launched the Matching Grant Scheme for Skills Upgrading (“the Scheme”), which is one of the relief measures under the Anti-epidemic Fund (“AEF”). The objective of the Scheme is to provide matching grants to statutory bodies, industry associations and related bodies for organizing training programmes for individuals, in particular those who have been adversely affected by the economic downturn as a result of the coronavirus disease-2019 epidemic, so that they will be better equipped with enhanced skills to prepare for the economic turnaround.
