Who is eligible for Financial Assistance?
Anyone is eligible to apply for Financial Assistance. Awards are based on a sliding scale that considers household size and income, as well as other extenuating circumstances.
How is the amount of Financial Assistance determined?
Financial Assistance is awarded by looking at federal guidelines issued by the United States Department of Health and Human Services, which takes into account the family size and income, but award amounts are not limited to this guideline. Skate Like a Girl will do everything possible to provide additional assitance if needed. For camps, to make sure assistance is available to as many families as possible, we can accomodate a maximum of two weeks of camp per eligible child.
How long does Financial Assistance last?
Financial Assistance is granted for up to 5 years, or until a household income/size change occurs, whichever comes first.
