Ontario ARC Receives NYSARC Trust Services Guardianship Grant

The trustees of the NYSARC Trusts authorized $2,315,500.00 in restricted grants from the NYSARC Trusts Remainder Funds to be paid to the NYSARC Chapters for the exclusive purposes of funding Chapters’ guardianship program operating expenses. Last year, Ontario ARC received a similar grant from NYSARC Trust Services to purchase items for people supported by the Guardianship program, including items for daily use and gifts for birthdays and special occasions and plans to use the funds in the same fashion this year. In addition, Remainder Fund grants in the amount of $12,500 per Chapter were awarded to support NYSARC recreation programs statewide.

A total of $2,795,500.00 in remainder grants were awarded in 2016 to support recreation and guardianship statewide. NYSARC Trust Services administers supplemental needs trusts that enable people with disabilities to remain in their home and community while retaining Medicaid services and other government benefits.
