COVID-19: Terengganu announce additional allocation of RM 960,000

KUALA TERENGGANU: The Terengganu government announced an additional allocation of RM960,000 under the Phase Three Stimulus Package, to help ease the burden of the people due to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar said, the additional allocation for the purchase of foodstuff such as rice and sardines would be distributed to the affected people throughout the 32 state constituencies.

“An allocation of RM30,000 will be channelled to each state constituency which will benefit 600 people in one area.

“The priority is to help families who have no fixed salary and do not get monthly aid from the Social Welfare Department (JKM) and the Terengganu Islamic Affairs and Malay Customs Council (MAIDAM),” he said in a statement posted on his Facebook page today.

This is an extension of the Phase One and Two Terengganu Stimulus Package, which include financial allocation, deferment and payment exemption for various types of rent and loans under the state government.

Ahmad Samsuri said, the Village Community Management Council (MPKK) would identify the eligible recipients and the Community Service Centre in each state constituency would handle the distribution of aid.

“The state government will coordinate the relief package to the people through several phases which would be announced from time to time.

“Let us pray that our country will recover from this pandemic and life will get back to normal,” he said
