The program is administered by the SSA Committee. The program operates on a reimbursement basis and the applicant is responsible for all payments to professionals, city departments and contractors. The SSA Committee will verify actual costs incurred by applicant prior to reimbursement. The general program, qualifications, guidelines and conditions are detailed in the application.
