Financial Assistance

The Recreation Division offers a wide variety of programs for youth and children of all ages throughout the year. As the Recreation Division operates independently of the tax-based budget through a Special Revenue Fund, all formal programs requiring a registration form also require an associated user fee. Realizing that there are residents who cannot afford the registration fee and are therefore unable to participate, a program of financial assistance has been developed. The program provides assistance as funds are available, to qualified residents who might not otherwise be able to participate. Discounted registration fees are available to those who qualify, on a sliding scale, for many Recreation programs offered for youth and children as well as family pool passes. The purpose of this policy is to provide a mechanism for equitable treatment and optimal accommodation for resident families in need.
To see if you are eligible for Financial Assistance please contact the Human Services Department by phone 860-648-6361, to schedule a meeting. For specialized Financial Assistance programs and for payment plans, see below.
