Financial Assistance Application Button copy_0 (1)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How is the financial assistance amount determined?

Financial assistance is based on gross monthly income, family size and personal circumstances when you apply. Gross monthly income includes wages/salary of all individuals contributing to the household income, as well as unemployment, child support, parental support, disability income, social security income, government assistance and retirement income. Assistance will be granted to the extent funds are available.

What is the duration of assistance and how do I renew?

Financial assistance is given in 3 month increments. At the end of the 3 months, simply reapply for continued assistance by submitting any changes in income and updated documentation to the Member Services Director. Use of facilities may be a determining factor in decisions concerning renewals. If you do not submit the appropriate paperwork for renewal your membership will expire. Membership fees and assistance are subject to change when you reapply.

Does financial assistance cover the entire cost of membership and program fees? 

Financial assistance reduces membership fees, it does not eliminate them. Financial assistance can be used towards membership fees, program fees for youth sports and activities, child care, preschool and other Y programs.

What if I haven’t filed Federal Income Taxes? 

If you haven’t filed a Federal Income Tax you need to contact the Internal Revenue Service at 1.800.829.8374 to request a letter of verification of non-filing status and submit with this form.

When should I expect my application to be processed? 

Completed applications containing all necessary paperwork will be reviewed within three weeks. Your request for assistance may be denied or put on hold without all the required paperwork.

Do you provide financial assistance for child care, preschool tuition, swimming lessons or youth sports?

Yes, we provide financial assistance for all of these programs!

I have additional questions and special circumstances. Who should I contact to find answers?

If you have additional questions or want to discuss special circumstances, please contact Sandy Halbach, our Member Services Director at 507.433.1804 or shalbach@ymca-austin.org. She will be happy to answers any of your questions in a confidential manner.
