We offer assistance to eligible San Francisco residents through our Recreation Scholarship Program. Eligibility in our Scholarship Program gives low income residents to at least a 50% discount and as much as 100% off program registration. Low-income is defined as having household income less than 250% of Federal Poverty Level.
Or, meet one of the following criteria:
To apply, you will either need to agree to allow us access to the San Francisco Human Services Agency (HSA) Income Verification Database and provide the last 4 digits of your social security number OR you will need to upload verification documents.
Scholarships will be granted for a 2-year period. Scholarship status and renewal is based on previous and current program attendances. Participants must attend 75% of all enrolled classes. Late withdrawals (less than 1 week before start date) and no-shows will result in cancellation of the scholarship.
To apply in time for an upcoming Priority Registration period, applications must be received at least 2 weeks in advance of the registration start date.
