Enhanced Anti-epidemic Support Scheme for Property Management Sector

To support the property management (PM) sector in anti-epidemic efforts and benefit more frontline PM workers, the Government launched the "Enhanced Anti-epidemic Support Scheme for Property Management Sector" (Enhanced ASPM) under the "Anti-epidemic Fund" by extending the subsidised period (i.e. February to May 2020) of the previous ASPM for three months (i.e. June to August 2020) and relaxing the caps on headcounts of the "Anti-epidemic Hardship Allowance" ("AHA") per eligible building block to 100.

Under the Enhanced ASPM, frontline PM workers who have been performing duties related to security or environmental hygiene in private residential/composite (i.e. commercial cum residential) and industrial/commercial building blocks (including shopping malls) during the subsidised period (i.e. June to August 2020) will be eligible for "AHA" for the months in which they have provided service. If these workers have benefitted from the previous ASPM (covering February to May), they will be eligible for "AHA" for a total of seven months. In order to benefit more frontline PM workers, the relaxation of caps on headcounts of the AHA per eligible building block to 100 is applicable to the private residential/composite building blocks in the ASPM (Phase I) and the industrial/commercial building blocks in the ASPM (Phase II).

The Enhanced ASPM aims to subsidise the PM companies (PMCs) or owners organisations (OOs) of these buildings to give "AHA" to the frontline PM workers who have been performing duties related to security or environmental hygiene, with a view to strengthening their capacity on personal protection and environmental hygiene, and giving recognition to their committed services during this critical period. "Anti-epidemic Cleansing Subsidy" will also be provided to these PMCs or OOs, so as to alleviate the additional costs arising from heightened cleansing efforts and the burden on the residents, owners and tenants.

The Property Management Services Authority (PMSA) has been commissioned to implement the Enhanced ASPM. Eligible PMCs and OOs should submit their applications to the PMSA. If PMCs and OOs have submitted applications for or their applications have already been approved under the previous ASPM, they do not need to submit a new application for the Enhanced ASPM. HAD or PMSA will contact the PMCs and OOs concerned direct. For details on the Enhanced ASPM, please contact the PMSA at 3696 1156 or 3696 1166, or visit the website of the PMSA (www.pmsahk.org.hk).
