  Background
    The Innovation and Technology Fund for Application in Elderly and Rehabilitation Care (I&T Fund) set up in December 2018 to subsidise eligible elderly and rehabilitation service units to procure, rent and trial use technology products, so as to improve the quality of life of service users as well as reduce the burden and pressure of care staff and carers. 
         
  Source of Funding
    The Government has earmarked $1 billion for setting up the I&T Fund.
         
  Eligibility of Applicant Organisations
      All service units from NGOs and private organisations receiving subsidies from SWD and providing residential care services for elderly and persons with disabilities, community care and support services for the elderly or day rehabilitation and community support services for PWDs (For details, please refer to Annex 2.2 of the I&T Fund Manual).
      The application for procurement and rental of technology products has been extended to all non-subsidised private and self-financing residential care homes for the elderly and persons with disabilities from the Eighth Tranche launched in September 2022 onwards.
