About: 

The Persons with Persistent Multiple Barriers (PPMB) category recognizes individuals who are unable to achieve financial independence because of specific barriers to employment.

The Persons with Persistent Multiple Barriers (PPMB) category provides assistance to clients who have long-term barriers to employment that are not expected to be overcome in the short term despite all reasonable steps by the client. PPMB clients are exempt from employment obligations. An earnings exemption is available to encourage clients who want to work to try employment, gain experience, participate more fully in the community as they are able, and earn more income.
