CAG supports access to its programming by offering fee assistance to families and individuals who are eligible. The purpose of the fee assistance policy is to reduce financial barriers to participation in programming offered by CAG and it is designed to ensure that any resident of Old Ottawa East has access to programming, regardless of ability to pay. Please apply at Old Town Hall by completing the Financial Assistance Policy and Request Form. You must be a resident of Old Ottawa East to qualify and residents are eligible on a first come, first served basis. The Financial Assistance Request Form includes a list of streets defined as Old Ottawa East
Each household is eligible for annual maximum fee assistance of up to $150.00. The year is considered to be September 1 - August 31.
Fee assistance clients are encouraged to pay what they can afford, but are expected to pay a minimum of 50% of the cost of any program or activity. This builds commitment, particularly as it relates to attendance. In situations where this contribution presents a barrier to participation the percentage can be reduced or waived.
CAG will provide financial subsidies for one (1) space in each program, two (2) in programs with more than 15 participants. The participant’s financial contribution should be paid prior to the start of the program. Residents must reapply for financial assistance at the start of each new session.
