Welcome Message

Welcome to the website of the Working Family and Student Financial Assistance Agency (WFSFAA) of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

The WFSFAA is committed to providing dedicated financial assistance to needy families in Hong Kong, supporting children and youths receiving education and encouraging working families to stay in active employment for self-reliance.

Through various student financial assistance schemes, covering students from pre-primary to post-secondary levels, we work to ensure that no students in Hong Kong will be denied access to education because of lack of means. We also encourage students to achieve excellence in their academic studies through a number of scholarships and merit awards schemes.

We are also responsible for implementing the Working Family Allowance (WFA) Scheme. The Scheme aims to encourage self-reliance and ease inter-generational poverty. We promote the Scheme through this website and other channels.

From February 1 to April 30, 2019, we receive applications under the Caring and Sharing Scheme. Application forms are available from January 21, 2019.

We have featured in our website a range of useful information to provide you with an overview of our organisation, policy objectives, activities and details of the student financial assistance and scholarship schemes, as well as general information of the Caring and Sharing Scheme and the WFA Scheme.

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you will find it interesting and informative. We also welcome your suggestions and comments.

Mr Esmond Lee, JP
Head, Working Family and Student Financial Assistance Agency
