Financial Assistance

General Information

Financial assistance is provided based on financial circumstances. Financial assistance is not guaranteed and is approved based upon need, program space, and fund availability. All applicant's personal information is kept confidential. Class instructors are not informed of applicant's assistance status.

Financial assistance may not be applied to trips or facility rentals.

Registration fees are charged to recover the direct operating costs to deliver the program.

Eligibility

All applicants who wish to register for programs provided by CCRP are eligible to apply for financial assistance.  Financial assistance will not cover the entire cost of the program.  Applicants are still responsible for 50% of the regular program cost (discounts such as early registration do not apply).

Financial assistance is unable to be applied retroactively (after a participant is already registered).

How To Apply

 1. Complete the online financial assistance application.  If you would rather not submit online, you may download a fillable pdf copy here that you may either complete and email to dwallace@carolinemd.org or print out and complete by hand.  Completed copies may also be returned in person to our office.

 2. Complete the program registration form(s) if applicable.  If you do not have a registration form, please call our office to register over the phone.  Financial assistance is not available when users register themselves online.

 3. Submit the registration form to CCRP by mail, fax, email, or in person with 50% of the program cost. An application without payment will be considered incomplete.  Applicants will be registered for the program when the balance of the fee is paid. 

Payment

Financial assistance reduces the registration fee for a particular program, but applicants will be required to pay half of the regular registration fee upon application.

Payment plan

An alternative payment schedule will allow installment payments over a specified time period. Full payment must be received before the participant may attend the program.

Additional Information

If you wish to withdraw from a program, call 410-479-8120. A full refund less a $5 service charge will be given if a participant withdraws from a class at least 5 days prior to the first scheduled day. A refund will be given during the first half of a program only for an illness. Doctor's excuse must be presented at time of request. Refunds are issued by check or credit card, and must be approved by a Program Specialist or the Program Services Manager.
