NYSARC Recreation Grants

Mountain Lake Services has been awarded $15,000 in grants from the Trustee Management Board of NYSARC Trust Services to support Mountain Lake Services’ recreation program. 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. NYSARC Trust Services awarded Mountain Lake Services $15,000 to develop new recreational opportunities to enrich the lives of the more than 400 members it serves. Mountain Lake Services used the recreation grant funds to purchase a pontoon boat. The boat is accessible to all individuals who receive services at Mountain Lake Services.
