Coronavirus Stimulus Packages and Programmes: 

What You Need to Know - “Keeping It Simple” 

Many of our brothers and sisters in The Bahamas, including the members and attendees of Bahamas Harvest Church, are confronted with serious social and economic burdens and challenges, including the loss of jobs and reduced salaries, brought on by the CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) PANDEMIC.  Thankfully, the Bahamas Government has implemented various stimulus measures, and other entities have implemented packages and programmes, seeking to alleviate some of the associated hardships.  This is indeed commendable; however, the volume of information available to those needing and seeking assistance can be overwhelming, which invariably leads to confusion, anxiety, frustration, uncertainty and fear. This website was birthed out of the desire of our members and attendees not only to be kept informed, but most importantly, for that information to be distilled, and communicated in a manner that is easy for them to understand.   

Below is a list of the entities presently offering packages and programmes, or entities which may provide some assistance in the circumstances.  With a view to “Keeping it Simple”, the information is provided in an easy to read format.  Simply click on the link below to obtain the information required:
