Chicago Park District Financial Assistance Program

Summer is around the corner, and the best way to keep the children of our communities safe, is to keep them occupied.  The Chicago Park District has many free-to-low cost programs for youth and teens alike this summer.  Thanks to Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s Summer Safety Surplus grant, we are able to offer financial assistance to thousands of children for day camp.   Applicants must provide proof of participation in the Illinois Free and Reduced Lunch Program. Applicants who do not participate in the school lunch program can prove eligibility by providing income verification (i.e., 2012 recent pay stubs for last 30 days, AFDC / TANF case #, a copy of a recent IRS 1040 form). All information submitted is confidential.   To apply for financial assistance, bring copies of the required documents to the desired park through June 11 during normal park hoursI have attached the financial assistance flyer for your convenience. 
  If you know of any families that may be able to take advantage of this opportunity, please feel free to share this information. Chicago Park District Day Camps run June 25th through August 3rd.   Contact your local park for details.
