January 29th Deadline Approaches for New Trier Township’s Financial Assistance Program for Persons with Severe Disabilities

 

Winnetka, January 14, 2010 – New Trier Township residents with severe disabilities are encouraged to apply for the Township’s Community Support Grants program by the Friday, January 29, 2010 deadline. The financial assistance reimbursement program provides a cash grant up to $1,500 per person/per fiscal year and covers a wide range of user-centered services. The program is open to all Township residents with a severe disability, with no restrictions as to age or income. Past recipients are eligible and encouraged to reapply.  The application is available online at www.newtriertownship.com or can be obtained by calling 847-446-8202. 

New Trier Township launched the program in 2007 and has awarded grants to over 100 different recipients, noted Patricia B. Cantor, Supervisor. "The program has made a measurable impact on Township residents with severe disabilities to exercise meaningful choices about their living environment, the providers of services they receive, the types of supports they use, and the manner by which services are provided," she added. The grants were issued to families with children and adults to help with services such as speech and occupational therapy, assistive equipment and specialized activities. Learn more about the program; download a fact sheet, FAQ, and application at www.newtriertownship.com
