Prince Edward Island Funding Sources
PEI Disability Support Program
The PEI Disability Support Program is a social program with a financial component. This means it is open to all Prince Edward Islanders with a qualifying disability, and may provide financial help. It was introduced in October 2001 and replaces the Family Support and Employability Assistance for People with Disabilities (EAPD) programs.
Eligibility is determined by meeting the applicable definition of disability and by the identification of required disability-specific supports.
The program is set up to respond to individual needs. It encourages economic independence by supporting people to work and earn income. It may also offer support to children and youth who have disabilities as well as their families. An individual case plan is developed for each client to determine the needs a client may have. If a wheelchair is a need it may be funded through the program over time.
