Limited Financial Assistance

There is limited financial assistance available to City of Menasha youth who cannot afford the full price of a program, lesson or pool pass.  Funding for this program comes from from donations so the amount available varies from year to year.  Applications are available at the Parks and Recreation department office or by clicking the link above.  A minimum of three (3) business days is required to review requests for financial assistance.
