What is Fee Assistance?
Fee Assistance helps offset a portion of JCC program fees and is made possible through JCCGW funding and the generosity of donors. Fee Assistance is variable and based on need, funding availability and per person household income.
How much Fee Assistance can I expect?
The typical award averages between 0%-40% of the program fee. Additional consideration may be given based on special circumstances. Participating families are responsible for paying the remaining program cost.
Who is eligible for Fee Assistance?
Fee Assistance consideration is available for those qualifying based on financial need. All JCCGW customers are eligible to apply for Fee Assistance.
When should applications be submitted?
As funding is limited and based on availability, applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible. Only one application should be completed per applicant family, per fiscal year (July 1- June 30).
Should I register for a JCC Program if I am requesting Fee Assistance?
Program registration is required in advance of requesting Fee Assistance. A refundable program deposit of $150 for Fee Assistance applicants is due at the time of program registration. Please note: Completed Fee Assistance applications and supporting documentation must be submitted within 30 days of program registration or registration will be cancelled and any paid fee assistance deposit refunded.
What happens after a Fee Assistance application has been reviewed?
Upon award decision, the applicant will be notified of eligible assistance to be granted. Applicants have 10 business days to accept or reject the Fee Assistance award and corresponding payment plan. If Fee Assistance is declined, program registration will be cancelled and deposits refunded.
