The Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) says its COVID-19 Relief Programme has been oversubscribed.
The light and power company says over 7,000 applications have been submitted for assistance with bill payments and care packages. The budget allocated for the programme is over $10 million to the elderly and disabled.
The JPS stated that regardless of the over subscription they will be seeking to provide all qualified candidates with some form of assistance up to the end of May.
Under the programme the elderly, disabled and indigent persons have received care packages.
