The “Integrated Building Maintenance Assistance Scheme” (IBMAS) is a one-stop building rehabilitation service jointly managed by the Hong Kong Housing Society (HKHS) and the Urban Renewal Authority (URA) since 1 April 2011, providing technical and financial assistance to eligible property owners of private residential/composite buildings.
In response to the 2011 Urban Renewal Strategy which stated that rehabilitation is one of the URA’s two core businesses and so the URA would gradually extend its rehabilitation service boundary to cover the whole of Hong Kong. The URA has already taken up the role to handle all new IBMAS applications in Kowloon, Kwai Tsing and Tsuen Wan since 1 April 2013.
With effect from 1 July 2015, all new IBMAS applications handled by HKHS including those in Hong Kong Island, the New Territories and Outlying Islands are received and processed by the URA. In other words, HKHS has stopped accepting new IBMAS applications altogether but continues to process and follow up IBMAS applications received on or before 30 June 2015.
