258. The 18 districts are pressing ahead with the District-led
Actions Scheme which helps address long-standing problems
and capitalise on opportunities in the districts. A total of 39
projects are being rolled out in the 18 districts this year.
Furthermore, from the next financial year, we will provide an
additional $100 million to the Community Involvement
Programme, bringing its annual funding to some $461 million, so
as to enable the 18 DCs to further enhance the implementation or
sponsorship of community involvement projects.
259. Funding approval has been given to most of the projects
proposed by the 18 DCs under the Signature Project Scheme. The
Government will follow up with the DCs.
260. The Government will launch Phase 3 of the Building
Management Professional Advisory Service Scheme to enhance
support for owners of old buildings, and assist owners of “three
nil” buildings in forming owners’ corporations (OCs), and
support OCs in discharging their responsibilities.
