The province is extending $4.6 million in direct and immediate financial support to low-income Manitobans with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic through the new Disability Economic Support Program, Premier Brian Pallister announced today.

More than 23,000 Manitobans receive monthly benefits under the disability category of Employment and Income Assistance. Under the Disability Economic Support Program, each of these Manitobans will be mailed a $200 cheque in early June for one-time support. This payment will not be considered taxable income and will not affect any other benefits received.

Description

  • The Disability Economic Support Program provides a one-time $200 benefit to lower-income Manitobans with disabilities receiving Employment and Income Assistance benefits.
  • Cheques are mailed automatically and there is no need to apply to the program.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Individuals who are receiving Employment and Income Assistance and qualify as a person with a disability.

Available Assistance

  • Each person will receive a $200 support benefit. It will not be considered taxable income and will not affect any other benefits a person may receive.
  • There is no application process required.Contact Us
