New Income Supports For Disabled Manitobans

New Supports For Disabled

WINNIPEG - The Manitoba government is starting an income support program for people with disabilities.

Families Minister Rochelle Squires says it will be separate from the province’s general employment and income assistance program but will offer similar financial, health and other benefits.

She says clients in the disability program will see increased benefits of about $100 a month, laundry and phone allowances, with the ability to earn up to $12,000 annually without any reduction.
