Persons in all three parishes whose homes were badly damaged during the hurricane are eligible to receive between $30,000 and $60,000 and Buchanan says more than 5,000 cheques have already been paid.
Speaking at the weekly post Cabinet press briefing on Thursday, Buchanan said the discovery of false information on several applications has delayed the process.
