Can I Get Funding for these Services?

The Brighton Launch Adult Program meets criteria for both RESP funding and the Developmental Services Ontario PASSPORT Program. “Passport is a program that helps adults with a developmental disability be involved in their communities and live as independently as possible by providing funding for community participation services and supports, activities of daily living and person-directed planning. The program, also provides funding for caregiver respite services and supports for primary caregivers of an adult with a developmental disability.”

Who is eligible for Passport Funding?

Any adult who is eligible for developmental services and supports funded by the Ministry of Community & Social Services, including young adults who are 18 years of age and still in school may apply for funding.
