The City of Sanibel financial assistance program assists financially eligible island (Sanibel and Captiva) residents’ and island worker’s children to attend the after school program, fun days, holiday, spring and summer day camps at the Sanibel Rec Center. These programs are held in a supervised, safe, friendly environment.

Applicants are awarded financial assistance on a sliding fee scale based on need objectively determined.The application includes the applicant’s income, number of residents in the family household, income tax return and other relevant information that verifies the applicant’s financial information. Names of applicants and identifying information of the applicant are struck from the application so that the Financial Assistance Committee in a public meeting held once a month makes an objective award determination.

Financial awards range from 10 to 80 percent. Each applicant must contribute to the award so that each applicant has “ownership” in the program.

For more information, call the Sanibel Rec Center at 472-0345 or visit www.mysanibel.com .
