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 household members to stay in active employment.
Through various student financial assistance schemes which cover 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 strive for excellence in their academic studies through a number of scholarships and merit award schemes.
The WFSFAA is also responsible for implementing the Working Family Allowance (WFA) Scheme. The WFA Scheme provides different levels of allowance according to the principle of rewarding hard work with a view to encouraging self-reliance and easing inter-generational poverty. We promote the scheme through this website and other channels.
We have featured in our website a range of 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 WFA Scheme.
Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you will find the information useful. We also welcome your suggestions and comments.
