The ArcSullivan-Orange Counties Awarded $24,000 in Grants from NYSARC Trust Services
To support recreational opportunities for people with disabilities in Sullivan and Orange Counties
MONTICELLO - The Arc Sullivan-Orange Counties, a not-for-profit organization supporting people with disabilities in Sullivan and Orange Counties has been awarded $24,000 in grants from the Trustee Management Board of NYSARC Trust Services to support The Arc Greater Hudson Valley’s recreation programs.
NYSARC Trust Services administers supplemental needs trusts (SNT) and pooled trusts that can make dramatic improvements to the lives of people with disabilities by enabling individuals to maintain eligibility for Medicaid and other means-tested government benefit programs. For 2020, NYSARC Trust Services is proud to fulfill its commitment to enhancing the lives of people with disabilities by awarding a total of $2,636,000 in grants to The Arc New York Chapters statewide.
The grant would normally be used to enhance recreational opportunities for the people with disabilities. However, due to Covid-19, the funds were used to supplement the losses from the recreation program. We hope to resume our valuable recreation programs to our youth and people supported in 2021.
