Thorough screening process used for cash assistance – FBC News

Acting Prime Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum clarified that the $250 cash aid was given only to farmers who met the criteria.

Sayed-Khaiyum says the selection process for deserving applicants was thorough and aid went to farmers whose farms were verifiably damaged by Tropical Cyclone Cody.

This assistance went to farmers whose crops or livestock had been severely damaged by Cyclone Cody.

“As a reminder to all, successful applicants are all full-time farmers, their farms must fall in the path of Cyclone Cody, and at least 30% of their crops or 10% of your livestock must be damaged.”

Sayed-Khaiyum says they used an online process to verify evidence of the level of damage to the farm and the status of the claim.

“So if your name is not on the list of successful candidates, it is because our thorough screening process most likely revealed that you did not meet the qualifying criteria.”

Over three point one million dollars has been disbursed in cash assistance to over 12,700 farmers.
