Recreation Assistance Program

The City of Newman Recreation Department is now offering an Assistance Program. This program has been designed to aid those persons in our community who are in need of financial assistance in order to participate in our recreation programs. The City of Newman Recreation Department feels it is essential to every child's development to interact with other children who may not have otherwise had the opportunity to participate in our program. Approval of a participant's application for assistance allows for partial cost of program to be paid through our assistance program.

To apply for the Recreation Assistance Program, complete the following requirements:

  1. Applicant must be a resident of Stanislaus County.

  2. Obtain and complete an application from the Recreation Department.

  3. Attach most recent Federal Income Tax Return or proof of salary (pay stub).

  4. Return application, program registration, and accompanying documentation to:

    Newman Recreation Department

    Newman, CA 95360

    Our office is open Monday through Friday, 2:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

  5. Applications must be submitted to the Recreation office ten days prior to end of registration. Applications may take up to 10 business days to process. Applicants will be notified by phone or mail of the status of the application.

  6. Assistance Program participants must have regular attendance or risk the chance of losing the assistance (up to the discretion of the Program Administrator).

Those that qualify under the extremely low and low income levels will be given preference.
