Thousands of maxi taxi owners and operators are to get their $2,000 grants from the government by next week.
Yesterday in the Senate, Minister of Finance Colm Imbert said the funds are available for disbursement to the Ministry of Works and Transport.
Minister Imbert said the government is close to making a decision on whether the Fuel Support Grant would take the form of a cash option or a fuel card.
He also said the number of maxi taxis is now being tallied.
Government decided on the one off grant to help owners and operators of maxi taxis, affected by measures implemented to curb the spread of the Coronavirus.
