Fee Assistance Program

The City of Pleasanton Library and Recreation Department provides a Fee Assistance Program for residents who would like to participate in recreation programs but may not have the financial means.  Residents who meet the program income requirements are encouraged to apply. If you or a family member living in the same household is interested in participating in programs offered through the department, please review the eligibility criteria (Fee Assistance Guidelines) for participation.

Applicants can receive up to $200 per individual or up to $400 maximum per household each fiscal year (July 1 - June 30) provided funds are available. A co-payment of 25% of class fee and supply fee is required.  Fee assistance is issued for recreation programs and paratransit costs, including supply fees. Special trips and excursions are subject to approval by the department manager. Funding is available on a first come, first served basis. Full funding is not guaranteed.


To be eligible, applicants and household members must be a Pleasanton resident (living within Pleasanton’s property tax limits) and meet established income requirements based on the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Guidelines (HUD).

Applicants must submit a previous year’s tax return and current pay stub or other proof of income as stated in the application per household.


Interested individuals/household members may submit applications for consideration at any time during the year, in conjunction with the classes or programs advertised in the Activities Guides or for senior/disabled transportation services.

Completed applications with supporting documents may be submitted in person to the Library and Recreation Department at 200 Old Bernal Avenue, or the Pleasanton Senior Center at 5353 Sunol Blvd for review and consideration. You will be contacted regarding approval within 48 hours of submitting your application.
