Moreau Rec Soccer Financial Assistance Program
Eligibility: Every child in a family that is a resident of Moreau and/or the South Glens Falls School District that has been approved for the Federal Free or Reduced Cost School Lunch Program or New York Food Stamp Program is eligible for financial assistance.
Level of Assistance: For each eligible family, the cost to participate will be reduced to $15.00 per child.
Process: At the beginning of the registration process, you will be asked: “Do you wish to apply for the Act With Respect Always Financial Assistance Program?” - simply answer “Yes or No” and proceed with the questions that follow.
Documentation: Families applying for financial assistance will be required to include a copy of their approval letter with their payment of the reduced Session Fee.
Confidentiality: Families participating in the Financial Assistance Program will be strictly confidential and only the Moreau Rec Program Director and Soccer Director will know the specific families in the program. The total number or percentage of participants may be publicized if dissemination of that information would be beneficial to the program, like documenting the size of the program to sponsors.
Moreau Rec has been offering financial assistance to all children of families that qualify/approved for the federal free or reduced cost school lunch program and/or food stamps. The financial assistance provides a substantially reduced cost of participation.
Based on published data, 10-20% of the students in each of the elementary schools in SGF and Moreau receive free or reduced cost school lunches through the federal program. Families that qualify for food stamp automatically qualify for free or reduced cost school lunches. Moreau Rec believes that in the SGF community a significant number of children are not able to participate in the Moreau Rec Soccer Program due to family financial reasons.
The Moreau Rec Soccer Program has always wanted to find a way to provide financial assistance to families with need but until recently had not identified a mechanism to identify families with need without the need for Moreau Rec to review a family's personal financial information. Since the schools and the State evaluate each family's financial situation based on fixed federal standards, SWSC can be assured of financial need and can rely on the determinations made by the schools and/or State
