Founder of Money Media, Kalilah Reynolds, says the just-announced Community Action for Rewarding Engagement, or CARE, initiative will address the barriers that often prevent young people from accessing educational benefits.

The CARE initiative was announced by Prime Minster Andrew Holness during his contribution to the budget debate on Thursday.

The CARE Initiative, which aims to reach those young people not equipped to compete in the labour force, will be offered through the HEART/NSTA Trust.

The initiative will also provide a grant to those enrolled in the various programmes offered by HEART.

Mrs. Reynolds is applauding the prime minister for his announcement of plans by the National Housing Trust, NHT, to offer one-bedroom apartments as starter homes. 

These apartments will be available to contributors via sale agreements with an optional buy-back clause. 

Meanwhile, Mrs. Reynolds says she’s disappointed that much wasn’t said about grant funding and tax incentives for member of the business community.
