Multiple Sclerosis Assistance Program
To assist New Brunswick residents diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), the government offers a one time maximum grant of $2,500 to qualifying applicants, to help them access services not available in New Brunswick. The program will “match” the funds raised by the community and/or individual to a maximum of $2,500 per individual.
To qualify for the one time maximum grant of $2,500, applicants must:
• Be a New Brunswick resident diagnosed with MS who has received services outside of New Brunswick on or after April 1, 2011, which are not covered by another provincial program.
• Provide a letter, from an organization or third party indicating the amount of funds raised on behalf of the individual diagnosed with MS.
• Provide documentation or a letter from the service provider indicating that the individual seeking financial assistance under the Program has been diagnosed with MS; has received the service and the date the service was provided
Applications must be completed, printed and mailed to:
NB Internal Services Agency
MS Assistance Program
Attn: Accounts Payable
PO Box 6000
Fredericton, NB E3B 5H1
Or you can also drop off your completed application at the nearest Service New Brunswick office.
It will take about 2-3 weeks for an approved applicant to receive his or her grant.
Should you require further information on this program, please contact the NB Internal Services Agency at 1-888-487-5050 (select option 3) or NBISAPayables@gnb.ca.
