Commonwealth Community Trust (CCT) is a non-profit, Virginia-based statewide organization established in 1990 by parents of children with disabilities. The CCT provides a convenient and economical way to have trust funds administered for people with disabilities that will supplement the benefits offered by entitlement programs. The goal of the CCT is to enhance government programs for the lifelong special needs of the beneficiary so that he or she can live securely. The "Special Needs Trust" is funded by a third party, usually a close family member. The "Pooled Disability Trust" is self-funded by the individual with a disability.
