Passport Funding Information

Passport funding is provided by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services to help adults with a developmental disability over age 18 be involved in their communities and live as independently as possible.

Key Goals for the Passport Funding Program:

  • Foster independence by building on individuals’ abilities and developing community participation, social and daily living skills.
  • Increase opportunities for participation in the community with supports that respect personal choices and decision-making, and help people achieve their goals.
  • Promote social inclusion and broaden social relationships through the use of community resources and services available to everyone in the community.
  • Help young people make the transition from school to life as an adult in the community.
  • Support families and caregivers of an adult with a developmental disability so they can continue in their supportive role.
You may be eligible for at least $5500 a year to help you participate in:
  • Community activities and supports
  • Activities of daily living
  • Person Directed planning and
  • Caregiver respite supports


Passport Funding can be used to pay for a number of fee for service options at KW Habilitation including:

  • LEG Up! classes
  • KW Career Compass services
  • Out and About WR activities
