Hardship Grants – Kiwi Correspondent

Posted on: Mon 27 Jan 2020

In the last part of 2019, The New Zealand Ministry of Social Development paid out more than 573,000 hardship grants at the cost of $165 million.

As the demand for these hardship grants continues to skyrocket, Work and Income case managers aren’t able to spend as much time getting people into jobs.

95bFM’s Oscar Perress joins Breakfast’s Zoe Kounadis and Tom Mann to discuss this and other news from across the Tasman.
