Fee Assistance Program

M-NCPPC parks and recreation activities are supported by the taxpayers of Prince George's County, which keeps fees affordable. Some residents still need financial help to participate in classes and activities.

Depending on the level of need, an individual or family may qualify for a 90%, 70%, 50% or 20% reduction in the fee for designated programs. Completed applications and all necessary documentation including proof of income must be returned to a community center or other facility at least three weeks before the starting date of a program. Applicants pay a 10% deposit to hold space in the program while the application is being reviewed. All information gathered for the purpose of determining fee assistance will be kept in the strictest confidence.

The Fee Assistance Program may be used for classes for all ages, day camps, Kids' Care, preschool, and other specific activities where the total fee exceeds $35. Fee assistance is not available for groups or teams, or for people who do not live in Prince George's County.
