GUAN ENG: RM100 aid for Penang's low-income families - NST

PULAU PINANG, FRI: Jul 18, 2008

Penang residents whose monthly household income is less than RM1,500 qualify for RM100 aid from the state government, says Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng today.

The financial aid will be channeled through the Perbadanan Bekalan Air Pulau Pinang Sdn Bhd (PBAPP) or Penang Water Supply Corporation to assist the low-income earners to cope with rising costs of living.

“Those interested in applying for the cash aid only have to fill in a form which will be distributed with their waterbills. The completed forms can be submitted at the PBAPP offices before Sept 30,” he said.

The PBAPP offices are located at Komtar, Perai, Bukit Mertajam, Jawi, Rifle Range, Kepala Batas, Taman Selat and Balik Pulau.

The one-off payment would be credited into their account with PBA before year end, he said.
