Treasurer for the Ghana Olympic Committee Mr. Frederick Acheampong confirmed this on Rainbow Sports.
He disclosed that the GOC has received an amount of $102, 000.
But would have to take a look at the accounts and the way forward before the release of money to the various federations.
The Olympic system he explained is cumbersome and any money given you must be accounted for.
He assured the various federations that they would receive their allocations due to them.
He said some of the federations had demanded an update on the funds and the release by ANOCA was a relief to the GOC.
The treasurer said the funds that arrived would focus on the cost in preparation by the federations and not the support they received from the government.
He added that some 15 federations are expected to receive some amount from funds released by ANOCA.
