RecAssist Financial Assistance Applications Available on June 3

Applications for RecAssist financial assistance will be available on our website and at Customer Service starting on June 3. RecAssist is different than the old financial assistance program: · The program, beginning on July 1, will be a 6 month program, ending December 31, 2013. This will allow us to bridge the transition from a Fiscal Year program to a Calendar Year program. · The RecAssist Fund is now “pooled.” All qualified applicants will have the subsidy placed on their accounts, but use of it will be on a “first come, first served” basis. Once the total RecAssist Fund is depleted, no more subsidies can be used – even if a customer hasn’t used up their entire individual subsidy award. · There are two tiers of awards. Those who are receiving Temporary Cash Assistance and Supplemental Security Income will receive more than those who are receiving other types of public assistance. · Customers using RecAssist must pay 15% co-pay for programs and passes. · Customers may no longer use RecAssist for daily pool admissions, but may still purchase pool passes with subsidy funds. All RecAssist applications will be processed by Management Services. No RecAssist applications will be processed at the centers or pools. Customers may submit their completed application and documentation by fax, by mail or in person ONLY at the Customer Service Desk at 4010 Randolph Rd, Silver Spring, MD 20902. Applicants should allow 10 days for their applications to be processed, and will receive notice by mail or email advising them of the amount of their RecAssist. http://www6.montgomerycountymd.gov/rectmpl.asp?url=/content/rec/how/financial.asp
