(This amendment provides $250,000 GF the second year to increase access to personal assistance provided to individuals who are on waiting lists for services. At present there are 42 individuals on waiting lists for services; funding will reduce the waiting list for personal assistance services by one-third. The Disability Commission requested funding to eliminate the entire waiting list.)
