No Interest Loan Scheme

Eligible SGCH tenants can apply for a no interest loan up to $1,500 to repay over 12 to 18 months for essential goods and services.

SGCH is a registered No Interest Loan Scheme (NILS) Service Provider and can help you make an application for an interest free loan.

Loans are up to $1,500 for repayment over 12-18 months and can be used for goods and services such as fridges, furniture, washing machines, car repairs as well as education and medical/dental expenses.

In the NILS program, SGCH does not approve the loan or provide the actual money. Our Housing Plus Coordinator can help you apply, then the Community Loan Provider who looks after the finance will contact you directly about the outcome and next steps.

To be eligible you must have a health care card/pension card, have been an SGCH tenant for more than three months and show a willingness and capacity to repay.
