On January 13, 2010, the Provincial Government demonstrated their continued efforts to reduce barriers to financial independence for persons with disabilities with the announcement of new funding for the Newfoundland and Labrador Association for Community Living (NLACL).
At that time the Honourable Susan Sullivan was the Minister of Human Resources, Labour and Employment and Minister Responsible for the Status of Persons with Disabilities. Minister Sullivan announced a funding commitment for this initiative.
The NLACL will use these funds through its Provincial Incentive Program. This program will promote the uptake of the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP) throughout the province by providing eligible individuals with an opportunity to participate in RDSP information sessions, as well as receiving a one-time $150 stipend from the NLACL as an extra incentive to set up a RDSP.
By filling out the Provincial Incentive Program form you are eligible to receive $150 from us to contribute to your Registered Disability Savings Plan.
