Income Supports Transfer – IST

Income Support Transfers (IST)

The prime objective of the IST Program is to increase individual and community self-reliance.

Through the constructive use of these funds combined with funds from other sources; employment opportunities may be provided to those persons who would otherwise remain unemployed.

Participants in the Project will have opportunities to acquire useful skills and become self-supporting. The Income Support benefits that would normally be paid out to the client are transferred to the Project to support the provision of salaries for the participant.
