Financial Assistance
The City of Greenbelt Department of Recreation has two different financial aid programs in order to make sure that all residents get the opportunity to participate in their many programs.

Greenbelt Recreation Financial Assistance Program
The City of Greenbelt, an inclusive community, recognizes the fact that some residents may require financial assistance in order to participate in certain recreational activities that are offered through the Greenbelt Recreation Department.  As a result, the City of Greenbelt’s Financial Assistance program was developed and designed to assist eligible individuals and families experiencing financial difficulties to access our programs, by providing the option to apply for a reduced fee.

The Financial Assistance Application was designed to help us determine your eligibility and the best possible solution to meet your specific needs. Please complete and Submit the form and documents using the on-line application. If for some reason, you can not use the on-line form, print out this pdf form, fill out and return to: Greenbelt Recreation Department, 25 Crescent Road, Greenbelt, MD 20770.

Regardless of your income, there are opportunities to participate. Please make sure to read the Financial Assistance Application Requirements before applying.

Mary Purcell Geiger Scholarship Fund
The Mary Purcell Geiger Scholarship Fund supports partial financial assistance for Greenbelt residents of any age who are interested in participating in Greenbelt Recreation Department visual arts, performing arts, and senior programs. Assistance is available on a limited basis according to need.

Individuals who have not yet received scholarship assistance during the current program year (July through June) will be given priority status in the awarding of support. Otherwise, assistance will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please note: funds cannot be applied to the cost of PG Community College classes, camps (for which separate scholarship assistance is available), courses offered by independent individuals and organizations, or programs costing less than the minimum required patron contribution.  

To apply, please fill out the On-Line Application Form.
