Subsidy scheme for vehicle maintenance workshops under Anti-epidemic Fund opens for applications
     The Government today (July 15) announced that the subsidy scheme for vehicle maintenance workshops (VMWs) under the Anti-epidemic Fund is open for applications from tomorrow (July 16) until August 14. A one-off non-accountable subsidy of $50,000 will be granted to each eligible VMW for assisting them in coping with the operating pressure under the COVID-19 epidemic. The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) expects the first round of subsidy payment will be made at the end of July at the earliest.
     To ensure the applications can be processed efficiently, only electronic applications will be accepted. Persons in charge of eligible VMWs may download the EMSD's mobile app "E&M Trade App" from Google Play or the Apple App Store for free and submit their applications through the app. They may also apply through the EMSD website.
     Application details are available on the EMSD webpage (www.emsd.gov.hk/en/supporting_government_initiatives/registration_scheme_for_vehicle_maintenance/aefss_vmw/index.html). For enquiries, please send emails to vm_aef@emsd.gov.hk or call 3968 7641.
