A Community Development Council (abbreviation: CDC; Chinese: 社区发展理事会; Template:Lang-ms) is a government-led programme to organise grassroot organisations and community programmes into smaller, local units as a bridge between the government and the community. It encourages volunteerism from wider community, and organises community and social assistance programmes with the help of a monetary grant from the government. They are governed by the Community Development Council Rules 1997.

OrganisationEdit

There are currently five CDCs, namely the

The council boundaries follow that of the existing political divisions, with each handling between four to six GRCs and SMCs and roughly dividing the country's population into equal parts. Each CDC is managed by a Council, which in turn is headed by a mayor and has between 12 to 80 members. The members are appointed by the Chairman or Deputy Chairman of the People's Association.

FundingEdit

The CDCs are funded by an annual sum from the government directly proportionate to the number of residents living within their jurisdiction at a rate of S$1 per person. They are free to conduct their own fund-raising programmes, which the government will match S$3 for every S$1 raised. The grant is raised to S$4 per S$1 donated through long-term arrangements, such as via GIRO. The government also pays for the councils' operational costs, including that for its offices.

CDC VouchersEdit

In addition, this Budget 2020, vouchers of $50 from the CDCs will be given to spent for the local businesses. The Community Development Council (CDC) Vouchers Scheme was launched yesterday to help Singaporean households with daily expenses while supporting local merchants and hawkers.

The households, identified through various government help schemes, can use the vouchers at participating shops and stalls such as hawker stalls and mom-and-pop shops.

Households will receive notification letters from June 15 to end-July. They have to present the letter and one NRIC per household during the voucher collection, which can be anytime till December 1. The scheme was launched yesterday in a closed-door Zoom meeting attended by DPM Heng, the five mayors - Ms Low, Dr Maliki Osman, Dr Teo Ho Pin, Ms Denise Phua and Mr Desmond Choo - and the president of the Federation of Merchants' Associations, Mr Yeo Hiang Meng, who was representing the participating merchants.
