The Government of Saint Lucia continues to be flexible in the provision of relief for citizens who have been adversely affected due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The deadline for applications for the Income Support Programme (ISP) for non-NIC contributors has been extended to July 30, 2020.
The decision to extend the deadline is to ensure that no one is left behind and to grant more time to those who have started and not completed the application process.
This relief program is for persons who were not contributing to NIC and made a living as sole traders and being self-employed. Over 1,000 persons have been paid and payments will continue to be made.
