St Kitts and Nevis: The government of the Federation of St Kitts and Nevis announced that they are going to extend the income support for the people who are continued unemployed. Now, the government has extended the support to the $1,000 per month, which will aid them in maintaining their conditions.

The announcement was made by the Prime Minister of St Kitts and Nevis, Dr Timothy Harris, when he attended the sixth National Convention of the People’s Labour Party (PLP) on March 26, 2022- Saturday. 

During his presentation at the Convention, Prime Minister Harris stated, “The government would soon announce various measures that would bring great relive for the residents of the Federation of St Kitts and Nevis. The newly added announcements could be included the reduction in the price of the gases at the pumps of the twin-island Federation. Moreover, it also included the reduction in certain taxes on several items such as groceries and many more, that will make the cost of living more manageable and adjustable.”
