Gov't allocates $2.8M to HEOC for food delivery and garbage collection during curfew
The Andrew Fahie administration has allocated $2.8 million to the Health Emergency Operations Centre (HEOC) to fund government’s food supply and garbage collection initiatives during the lockdown period.
Premier Andrew Fahie made that announcement via a social media briefing on Sunday, April 19, while addressing residents on the latest decisions made by Cabinet in relation to the COVID-19 crisis.
He said Cabinet approved the allocation of $2 million to the HEOC for the purpose of food provisioning. He said the money came from the Consolidated Fund and was transferred to the COVID-19 Fund.
“Simply put, your government has decided to ensure that they finance the food supplies of basic food packages to be delivered to you, the people. Those in terms of seniors and those who are really in need will be the targeted group, and anyone else who have generally run out of food,” the Premier stated.
