Abstract: This case study seeks to examine the role of the public rental housing scheme in Singapore. It asks how the implementation of rental housing policies intersect with various domains of life to perpetuate intergenerational social mobility. Fulfilling state rhetoric of the homeownership ideal, the government’s provision of public rental housing serves as a temporary measure to tide those who have financial difficulties (policy history). The goal of our paper is to underscore who qualifies for such services, and the challenges that undergird such approaches (policy question and challenges). The paper looks at the state of the government’s provision of public rental flats (policy implementation), and then concludes with an epilogue and policy discussion questions on how to lessen barriers in the social environment, and equalise social opportunities for the low-income so that they can achieve upward social mobility.
