THPRD is committed serving the needs of all district residents throughout the greater Beaverton area. Through the Financial Aid Program and a dedication to social equity, we are working toward removing barriers to participation and ensure that more district residents have access to facilities, programs, and recreational opportunities. If you cannot afford typical program fees, this program may help.
Households whose income falls below the Federal Free Meal Guidelines are eligible to receive a maximum of $200 per person annually in fee waivers. Only those members listed on the application will be eligible for funds.

After I receive my Financial Aid funds, how do I register?
Funds may be used for general programs and classes, plot fees for the community gardens and affiliated recreational youth sports leagues. Fee waivers cannot be used for facility rentals, birthday parties, third-party programs, competitive youth sports leagues, private lessons, childcare when guardians travel off-site, or the purchase of items (goggles, swim caps, towels.)

Using your Financial Aid Funds for a non-competitive Affiliated League fee
Please allow up to 10 business days for processing. After processing, payment checks are mailed directly to the league. You may apply at any time with an active application, payment checks will be issued twice a month.
Note: To register your child for an affiliated recreational youth sports league the parent or legal guardian will need to follow that organization’s enrollment procedures. THPRD does not enroll individuals in affiliated sports programs.
