According to the Ministry, from tomorrow the cheques will be distributed by TTPost, in keeping with this budgetary measure, which will cost taxpayers a total of One Hundred and Seventy-Five Million Dollars ($175,000,000).
According to Minister of Social Development and Family Services, Donna Cox, “I applaud the one-off transport grant of $1,000 for all the Ministry of Social Development and Family Services clients who currently receive public assistance, senior citizens’ pension, the disability and the food support grants.
I am confident that it will provide additional support to these vulnerable individuals and families. This measure is actually an added bonus for our seniors who use public transport”.
