For most of the cases, housing adjustments are not subsidised. The Government has launched the “Building Maintenance Grant Scheme for Elderly Owners” (BMGS) in 2008 to provide financial assistance of a maximum grant of HK$40,000 for each eligible elderly owner-occupier to repair and maintain building safety of their residential flat and/or building common areas. It includes structural aspects, safety of external elevations, defective windows, fire safety, sanitary services, waterproofing membranes, cubicles, slopes, and retaining walls (The Hong Kong Housing Society, 2020).
