Assured Income is a financial aid for individuals and families with disabilities that may not be able to access basic needs such as food, shelter, and other essentials. To be eligible for assured income you will need to have applied for and received AccessAbility Supports. The AAS Coordinator will work with you to assess basic and special needs funding requirements. You and/or your family must provide verification of eligible expenses and eligible income. Eligibility will be established based on a budget deficit calculation. Your funding requirements will be reviewed yearly with the AAS Coordinator. If you have an increase in needs or a change to your personal income you will have additional reviews on top of the yearly review.

If you receive approval for Assured Income you have the ability to access funding for any of the following:

  • Essentials such as clothing, household supplies, personal requirements, and local transportation
  • Food allowance
  • Shelter Supports
  • Communication Supports (telephone and/or internet)
  • Special Needs such as optical, dental, and/or furniture
  • Medical Supports
  • Transportation
  • Community Living Expense

Assured Income takes into account the state of the individual or their family’s income along with the required expenses for basic living and disability related support, to pay a suitable monthly amount.
