will subsidise up to 50% of the cost of installing 'green' rooftops or walls. Under its Skyrise Greenery Incentive Scheme , the cash incentive was initially to encourage existing buildings in Downtown and Orchard areas to install green roofs. NParks has now expanded the scheme to other areas in Singapore, such as Rochor, Museum, Singapore River and Outram. To help building owners undertake greening their roofs and walls, NParks will provide technical advice and an information booklet. It will also increase the prize money for the Skyrise Greenery Awards 2011 . The amount of prize money for first place will be US$8,000 (up from US$5,000). The second prize is US$5,000 (up from US$2,000) and the third prize will increase from US$500 to US$2,000.
