Financial Assistance Information
The purpose of the Community Assistance Program is to provide fee assistance that is fair, equitable and easy to access for low-income King Township residents.
The Community Services Department understands the benefits to individuals and families that are deprived from recreational opportunities. The department also recognizes that the ability to participate in these opportunities can be difficult, or limited for persons with low-income.
The foundation of the program is based on the values of human dignity and respect, health and wellness, social justice, and quality of life. Building these values, the Community Assistance Program creates an environment of cooperation and inclusivity to provide and improve recreational opportunities for individuals and families.
