Elroy Julien, CEO, National Commission for Self Help Ltd (NCSHL) has assured Tobagonians they will get their fair share of the commission’s allocation.
“I dare anyone to say differently,” he said on Wednesday while addressing the NCSHL’s first drive-through grant distribution ceremony at the commission’s office, Barrington’s Court, Bon Accord.
Some 55 families were presented with cheques totalling $940,000 to carry out repairs on their homes.
The funds were allocated through the NCSHL’s minor repair reconstruction grant, emergency repair reconstruction assistance grant and development program grant.
Julien said since August 2018, the commission has distributed approximately $10 million in grants in Tobago.
He said another grant distribution ceremony is being planned for August 20 at a cost of $1,125,000.
“In this regard and based on the information I have just provided, I have no qualms in saying that the commission continues to ensure that deserving families in Tobago are getting their fair share of the pie.”
