Financial Assistance Program

The City of Henderson offers support to Henderson residents needing financial assistance to participate in parks and recreation classes and programs. The City of Henderson Financial Assistance Program provides qualifying Henderson residents with the opportunity to participate in more programs by awarding financial assistance through a subsidy. The Financial Assistance Program is available only to Henderson residents who meet the current guidelines of the State of Nevada Child Care Subsidy program income chart.

Qualified Henderson residents may seek financial assistance for parks and recreation programs by applying for the Financial Assistance Program. Applications are obtained online and submitted electronically along with the necessary documentation. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Allow 14 calendar days to receive a status on your application. If approved, a staff member will contact you with the award amount. The financial assistance award is added to a FunCard to pay for program fees. The participant is required to pay any remaining balance of the program fee at the time of enrollment if funds on the FunCard are depleted.
