Oil rig workers claim BRAF acted unfairly

Posted on November 11th, 2011 No Comments

The Baton Rouge Area Foundation has recently come under fire for mishandling oil spill claims made by oil rig workers. The workers are claiming that BRAF did not give their claims a fair chance to receive a part of the $100 million BP fund.

A spokesperson for BRAF told the public that the foundation believes their practices are just and fair. BP selected BRAF to monitor the fund in which BRAF was paid $6.5 million to establish a nonprofit to hold the money. Distributions of this fund were made to 755 applicants out of 1,766 people who applied.

There were a total of 900 applications that were never considered due to BRAF deeming them incomplete. Oil rig workers are outraged that their chance to redeem income that was lost has dissolved.

The remaining $82 million in the fund will be given to different organizations who are involved in wildlife and environmental renewal for the Gulf Coast area.
