Fee Assistance Program

The City of Pleasanton 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.

For more information, please contact Recreation Services at (925) 931-5340.

Eligibility

  1. Must provide proof of Pleasanton residency, living within Pleasanton’s city limits (i.e. PG&E bill, water or garbage bill, rental agreement, etc.)
  2. Must provide proof of additional assistance (i.e. CalFresh, CARE Credit FERA Program, CA Life-Line Program, California Head Start Letter, Medi-Cal eligibility letter, Social Security Statement with a Bank Statement, etc.).

Application

Applicants may receive fee assistance once each fiscal year (July 1 to June 30), provided funding is available. Fee Assistance funds are available on a first come, first-served basis.

Interested individuals/household members may submit applications for consideration at any time during the year. All financial assistance must be applied for in advance prior to registering for classes. Funds will not be given retroactively to classes that participants are already registered for. Once approved, the allocated funds will be applied to and available for registration on the applicant’s Pleasanton’s Activities Guide account.

Applications can be submitted at Recreation Services located inside the Pleasanton Library or by sending us the completed application and supporting documents via the form below.

Contact us for more information.

Inclusion Services

The City of Pleasanton’s Recreation Department welcomes and encourages individuals of all abilities to participate in its programs and activities.

Inclusion is the process of providing supports, adaptations and modifications to ensure that individual needs and desires for participation are met in ways that are reasonable, safe and do not fundamentally alter the nature of the program or activity. If you or your child are in need of inclusion services in order to participate in a program or activity, please complete the Accommodation Request Form.  

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was conceived with the goal of integrating people with disabilities into all aspects of life. The City of Pleasanton has also adopted a policy to “promote facilities and activities that accommodate community and family use and accommodate persons of all physical abilities.” We welcome and look forward to your participation. 

Contact us for more information.

Community Grants

The City provides a Community Grant Program for non-profit organizations serving Pleasanton residents in the area of arts, culture and youth programs. The mission of the program is to enhance the quality of life in Pleasanton. Eligible organizations are encouraged to submit an application for either the Civic Arts or Youth Commission’s review.

The Commissions make funding recommendations to the Pleasanton City Council. Interested organizations are encouraged to review the Community Grant Application Packet for eligibility, criteria and requirements.
