Financial Assistance Application
We are pleased to announce the Monroe County YMCA will be accepting Financial Assistance (FA) applications from individuals who would like Y membership support for the 2018 calendar year beginning Wednesday, November 1, 2017. The Y FA applications for membership will only be accepted until November 30, 2017. In order for a prospective applicant to be considered for FA, the following are required:
- Submit a completed YMCA Financial Assistance application. Please visit monroecountyymca.org/FA for the application.
- Submit a copy of your 2016 Federal Income Tax Return (Form 1040, pages 1 and 2 only, or 1040EZ). If you do not file federal income taxes, please call 1-800-TAX-FORM (1-800-829-3676) for a verification letter. Please mark out all Social Security numbers and tax ID numbers on submitted paperwork.
- Submit two consecutive pay stubs for each income-earning member within the household. If you are unemployed, draw social security, or are a full-time student, please provide a summary of your unemployment benefits, SSI paperwork, financial aid benefits, and/or student schedule.
Applications will be processed only if all of the required information listed above is submitted. If the Monroe County YMCA receives an incomplete application, your request for financial assistance will not be considered.
Approval or Denial - Notification Process
Please note applicants will receive an approval or regret letter by December 31, 2017, regarding the outcome of their financial assistance application.
Terms and Agreements Regarding Usage and Payment
The following conditions must be agreed upon in order to receive the financial assistance:
- The individual or family household must use the YMCA facilities at least 12 times per month. After six months, the individual or family household usage of the facility will be evaluated. Failure to honor this requirement will result in membership termination. If the usage requirement has been met, the membership will be extended for another six months.
- If the individual or family member fails to make two timely, consecutive payments, the membership will be terminated.
- The financial assistance amount received is only earmarked for the 2018 calendar year. It does not automatically continue into the next calendar year. All applicants requesting financial assistance for the next year are required to complete and submit a new FA application.
Financial Assistance for Summer Camp
FA applications for summer camps will be accepted in February of 2018. This process is entirely separate from the current membership application process.
