Income Assistance

The Social Development Worker assists all eligible applicants in navigating the application process and distribution of monthly benefits for four different income assistance streams, Basic Income Assistance, Persons with Disabilities Benefits (PWD), Persons with Persistent Multiple Barriers benefits (PPMB), and Hardship Assistance. These monthly benefits programs are designed to support eligible community members with meeting the basic needs of daily living. Assistance programs also connect families and individuals to other support programs and access to employment supports.

Who is Eligible

Income Assistance Supports are for individuals and families in financial need, living within the community, including Klahoose Members, Members of other Nations, and non-status.

Assisted Living

The Assisted Living Program provides funding for non-medical social support services. Unlike the income assistance programs. The Assisted Living program is intended to provide support and enhance the dignity and quality of life for clients in need of varying degrees of care in their daily lives. The Social Development Coordinator manages applications and is the deciding body in providing services. Assisted living supports are available to Klahoose Members living within community.
