St.Amant operates on an annual budget of $58 million and is funded on a program-by-program basis primarily by Family Services and the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority.
Family Services funds just over 55% of St.Amant’s operating budget including Community Residential Program, Community Outreach, and Applied Behaviour Analysis Program.
Winnipeg Regional Health Authority funds the balance of the operating budget, which covers the complex care facility on River Road, the St.Amant School and Developmental Day Services, and all of the services within those programs.
St.Amant Research Centre’s base funding is provided by the The Winnipeg Foundation and the St.Amant Foundation, and through its partnership with the University of Manitoba. Researchers apply on a project by project basis to research granting agencies to fund their projects.
The St.Amant Foundation raises money to support the needs of children and adults with developmental disabilities and autism and the supporting programs which otherwise are not funded. Specific needs and priorities are reviewed and may vary from year to year.
