New Trier Township Sees Increase in Applications for Community Support Grants for Persons with Disabilities

The number of applications for New Trier Township Community Support Grants for Persons with Disabilities was 100, a 15% increase over the number who applied in fiscal year 2011/12. The deadline for those applications for fiscal year 2012/13 was December 31, 2012. The Community Support Grants program provides financial assistance to residents to meet some of the special medical and interventional needs and unusual expenses related to a person with a disability. Grants are assigned by a lottery, which is held each year in January. The lottery to assign the grants from fiscal year 2012/13 will be held on Wednesday, January 23 and will be overseen by Township Supervisor Pat Cantor and Trustee Paddie Brennen. The New Trier Township Board of Trustees allocated $75,000 for this program in fiscal year 2012/13 in order that 50 grants of $1,500 each can be distributed. The Board reviews funding for the Community Supports Grants program annually.
 

Community Support Grants for Persons with Disabilities provide financial assistance that helps in meeting some of the extraordinary expenses related to a person with a disability. There are no age or income restrictions on these grants. Community Support Grants can be used for therapeutic services, respite care, or any of a number of costs involved with the care of the person with a disability. Children or adults with diagnosed disabilities are eligible, including autism spectrum disorders; developmental and/or cognitive delay; multiple impairments; mental disorders, to name a few categories. In addition, residents with certain diagnosed compromising physical impairments are also eligible to apply for the Community Support Grants program. For a more full description of eligibility, please visit the Township website at www.newtriertownship.com or contact Jeanne Winsted Rosser at 847.446.8201 or jwinstedrosser@newtriertownship.com. The next Community Support Grants cycle will begin in the fall, and applications for those fiscal year 2013/14 grants will be accepted in fourth quarter of 2013.
