District residents in need may receive up to $200 per person per year in credit toward THPRD and affiliated youth sports league programs. Scholarship funds are available in two $100 allotments, six months apart.
If you live within THPRD district boundaries and your household income is below federal poverty guidelines (see chart), you are eligible.
If you live within THPRD boundaries and your household income is between the federal poverty guidelines and the federal free meal guidelines, you may be approved but will need to pay 10 percent of the requested funds ($20 per person). The payment must be received before scholarship funds are made available.
You must be entered in the district database and have a valid THPRD identification card.
A household is defined as any number of related individuals living in a single residence (home or apartment), up to six unrelated individuals living in a single residence, or any number of individuals living in a single licensed group home.
Income will be verified. Proof of income can be any combination of two of the following: two months worth of paycheck stubs for all working family members, free school lunch program notification letter (for households with school-age children), or proof of participation in a government program such as social security or food stamps. For your own protection, please block out any social security numbers on any document you provide THPRD to make them unreadable. Once verified, proof of income information will either be handed back to you or shredded. THPRD will not keep this information on file.
If you have no income or other special circumstance, please describe your situation on a separate piece of paper and submit it with your application.
Applications are accepted year-round. You may apply once each year; credits are valid one year from the date of activation.
Applications are available in English and Spanish at every THPRD facility and online. They are available in English in the activities guide and the summer camp booklet.
Unused scholarship funds may not be carried over from one first six month period to the next. You may use your credit at any time during the six months; all at once, or spread throughout the six months. Once the amount for that six month period is used, additional credit will not be available until the next six-month period begins. After the second six-month period has expired, you are eligible to re-apply.
Registration for THPRD programs occurs every December (winter classes), March (spring classes), April (summer classes and camps.) and September (fall classes). Please budget the use of your scholarship funds accordingly.
3. Registration Information
Registration for summer programs is underway. You may call 503-439-9400 or register online.
If you plan to use scholarship funds to register your child for an affiliated sports league, you will be able to do so as long as there is enough in your account to cover the cost. For youth sports leagues or other similar programs, the parent or legal guardian will need to follow that organization’s enrollment procedures. THPRD does not enroll individuals in affiliated sports programs.
Scholarship funds are only to be used for general programs and classes. Credits cannot be used for facility rentals, birthday parties, third party programs, elite clubs, private lessons or the purchase of items (goggles, swim caps, towels) at THPRD centers.
