Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) and Arts Grants

Arts councils encourage artists who are Deaf or have a disability to apply for grants to develop their artistic projects. However artists on ODSP worry about how this funding may affect their eligibility for, or the amount of ODSP benefits. This brochure explains the ODSP income rules and how various kinds of arts grants may be treated. NOTE: ODSP rules are changing in September 2017. The amount of "voluntary payments" one can receive is increasing to 10,000.
