Passport is a program that helps people with a developmental disability live as independently as possible in their communities. Individuals with a developmental disability (or their families) can apply for funding to support their personal development and growth. They can use the money to pay for activities to help them:
With Passport funding, individuals and families can receive money directly so they can purchase their own services and supports, get services and supports through community-based agencies, or get services and supports through a combination of both.
To apply, contact your Developmental Services Ontario office. If you’re eligible, staff there will help you complete a developmental services application package to assess your needs and connect you with services and supports as they become available.
