The Arc Allegany-Steuben, a not-for-profit organization supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Allegany and Steuben Counties, has been awarded $33,250 in grants from the Trustee Management Board of NYSARC Trust Services to support The Arc Allegany-Steuben’s Guardianship Program.

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 2023, NYSARC Trust Services is proud to fulfill its commitment to enhancing the lives of people with disabilities by awarding a total of $2,697,980 to The Arc New York Chapters statewide.

This year, The Arc Allegany-Steuben received $33,250 to provide guardianship services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities who would not otherwise have a legal guardian or advocate. Supported by Chapter staff and community volunteers, The Arc Allegany-Steuben’s Guardianship Program currently provides guardianship supports and services to seven people.
