SYCAMORE – The Sycamore Park District has created a COVID-19 Financial Assistance Program to provide full or partial payment of registration fees for Sycamore residents with financial hardships or temporary difficulties because of the pandemic.
This is in addition to the district’s traditional scholarship assistance program.
During the COVID-19 outbreak, staff has seen a great increase in park and trail users as public parks are one of the few things to remain open. Now, more than ever, people have discovered the wellness benefits and mental health support that participating in recreational activities provides.
As the district begins to reopen its fee-based facilities and programs, it will continue making the opportunities and services it offers accessible to all.
This financial assistance program is designed to assist anyone who is facing repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic. Any household (in-district and out-of-district) that is experiencing financial hardships can apply for this program which supports two Sycamore Park District program registration fees per person in that household.
