Community Start-Up and Maintenance Benefit
On December 27, 2012, the provincial government announced $42 million in one-time funding
for local housing and homelessness initiatives.
What does this announcement mean? How will it affect people receiving social assistance?
A new update from ISAC and ACTO
explains the announcement and how it relates to the loss of CSUMB.
It explains that, even with the additional $42 million for 2013-14, the elimination of CSUMB and the transfer of half the funds to municipal administration are a major change in social assistance policy
It gives information on six negative impacts
that people on social assistance will face as a result.
The update also outlines four steps you can take
to respond to this major change.
We've also created a one-stop webpage for information about CSUMB
