To support guardianship and new recreational opportunities for people with disabilities in Schoharie County

Schoharie ARC, a not-for-profit organization supporting people with disabilities in Schoharie County, has been awarded $15,000 in grants from the Trustee Management Board of NYSARC Trust Services to support Schoharie ARC’s guardianship* and recreation programs.


NYSARC Trust Services administers supplemental needs trusts (SNT) 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 2017, NYSARC Trust Services is proud to fulfill its commitment to enhancing the lives of people with disabilities by awarding a total of $2,793,500 in grants to NYSARC Chapters statewide.

This year, Schoharie ARC received $5000 to provide guardianship services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities who would not otherwise have a legal guardian or advocate.

NYSARC Trust Services also awarded Schoharie ARC $10,000 to develop new recreational opportunities to enrich the lives of the more than 300 members it serves. Schoharie ARC plans to use the recreation grant funds to support the Wellness Together Initiatives focused at helping people supported by the ARC and their support staff to live healthier lives and the Red Rose Project which provides inclusive opportunities for artistic expression through a variety of arts programs hosted by the Schoharie ARC.
