Interested to kick-start a youth initiative that co-creates social change to benefit the community? If your answer is YES, check out our National Youth Fund (NYF)! The NYF supports ground-up youth initiatives to champion community and social causes through partnerships with Youth Sector Organisations (YSO) including youth social enterprises, schools, Institutes of Higher Learning (IHL) and other community partners.



We are pleased to announce that the MCCY Grants Portal is getting a new look and URL address. We will be rebranding to OurSG Grants portal and unveiling our new website, https://oursggrants.gov.sg, from Friday, 21 August 2020.


Our transition to the OurSG Grants portal represents a move towards becoming a one-stop portal for community-building grants across government agencies. All the features that you enjoy with the MCCY Grants Portal will remain, with new enhancements planned for roll-out in the coming months. We hope to continue supporting you to start initiatives and create social good with a stress-free, seamless grant application experience.


We thank you for your continuous support, and hope you’ll like the new OurSG Grants portal.


If you encounter any problems with the portal or require additional help, please contact us at partnership_enquiries@nyc.gov.sgWe'll get back to you as soon as possible with a response.


Thank you.
