With levels of personal debt spiralling as a result of the economic downturn, Treasury Minister Philip Ozouf today announced two more recipients of cash from the fiscal stimulus package.
The Citizens’ Advice Bureau is to receive £65,000 from the £44 million set aside to help the Island through the credit crunch.
And £350,000 is to be spent on the refurbishment of St James’ Street refuge for the homeless to keep construction industry employees in work.
The announcement follows the news last week that stimulus money, which is being funded through States reserves, will be spent on providing more skills training for Islanders. A total of £2.5 million is being spent on providing extra places at Highlands.
