TUPPER LAKE — The Adirondack Arc, the Franklin-Hamilton Chapter of NYSARC Inc., has been awarded $15,000 in grants from the Trustee Management Board of NYSARC Trust Services to provide recreational opportunities for people receiving services from The Adirondack Arc.

Last year the Chapter received a similar grant, in the amount of $15,000, from NYSARC Trust Services to send people with developmental disabilities to concerts, county fairs, physical fitness programs, art lessons, and therapeutic massages; and the Chapter plans to use the funds in the same fashion this year.

NYSARC Trust services administers supplemental needs trusts that can make dramatic improvements to the lives of people with disabilities while enabling individuals to maintain eligibility for public benefits programs, such as Medicaid and SSI. For 2018, NYSARC Trust Services is proud to fulfill its commitment to enhancing the lives of people with with disabilities by awarding a total of $2,778,500 in grants to The Arc New York Chapters statewide.
