Food Allowance Funds Temporarily Delayed

April 3, 2019

The Department of Financial Assistance has confirmed that food allowance funds were temporarily delayed because of “Government’s financial year end.”

This follows after a notice was seen in a store that said, “Please note the Food Allowance for the April 2019 [1st Run] period will not be available until later this week. Please check with the Department of Financial Assistance @ 297-7600 for more information. Thank You.”

In response, yesterday a Government spokesperson said, “In response to your query, the Department of Financial Assistance has confirmed that funds were delayed because of Government’s financial year end.

“The funds were released yesterday 1 April, 2019 and have been received by grocers. During the interim situation, food vouchers were available to Financial Assistance clients. The cards are active for use today.”
