The Enhanced Pilot for Private Intervention Providers (Enhanced PPIP) is a subsidy scheme that offers more choices of early intervention programmes for children who have been referred for the Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Children (EIPIC). Parents who choose to enroll their children in selected Private Intervention Centres (PIC)s will receive subsidies that will help defray the enrolment costs.
From 1 Apr 2019, MSF will enhance affordability for the Pilot for Private Intervention Providers (PPIP) by broadening the income criteria for means-tested subsidies. For more information, click here.
