    Oneida, NY - The Arc Madison Cortland, a not-for-profit organization supporting people with disabilities in Central New York, has been awarded a grant from the Trustee Management Board of NYSARC Trust Services, supporting the agency’s Corporate Guardianship program.
    NYSARC administers supplemental needs trusts and pooled trusts that can make dramatic improvements to those living with disabilities by enabling them to maintain eligibility for public benefits programs, such as Medicaid and SSI.  NYSARC Trust Services is proud to fulfill its commitment in 2024 to enhancing the lives of people with disabilities by awarding a total of $2,697,508 in grants to NYSARC chapters statewide.
    This year, The Arc Madison Cortland received $27,800 to provide Corporate Guardianship services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities who would not otherwise have a legal guardian or advocate.
    Supported by Chapter staff and community volunteers, The Arc Madison Cortland Corporate Guardianship program currently provides supports and services to five people and is ready to assist three more as a Standby or Alternate Standby guardian.
