Seventy percent of the persons who applied for government’s Salary Relief Grant have been found eligible. This according to Minister in the Ministry of Finance, Allyson West. Speaking in the Senate on Monday, Ms. West said so far $30 million dollars in salary relief grants have been processed and distributed.

The Opposition however lashed back on the issue, saying there were many people who had been awaiting their grants. Last week Friday, Finance Minister Colm Imbert explained that some persons who applied for the grant did not qualify for it.
