14 December, KUALA LUMPUR – The applications for the First House Deposit Financing Scheme or MyDeposit for next year will open today (15 December) until Feb 15, 2018.
Deputy Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Halimah Mohamed Sadique said the public could register online at sprn.kpkt.gov.my
“At the tabling of the 2018 Budget, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak agreed to continue the MyDeposit scheme with an allocation of RM25 million,” she said when replying to a question from Senator Datuk Abidullah Salleh on the amount of aid channeled through the MyDeposit scheme and the number of recipients to date, at the Dewan Negara sitting today.
Since it was opened from April 7, 2016 until last October, 1,469 applications were approved with a payment amounting to more than RM39 million.
The MyDeposit scheme is aimed at helping the middle income group to buy their first home under private housing projects which did not get any subsidy.
