The City Parks and Recreation Department 2019 Das Rec Fee Assistance Program applications are available now and will be accepted April 1st through April 30th. Applications must be completed with the appropriate support documentation to be considered.
The Das Rec Fee Assistance Program allows New Braunfels residents with financial hardship the opportunity to experience Das Rec memberships, programs and services at a reduced rate. Awards are based on income and family size, and are available to anyone who qualifies, including seniors. Discounts range from 20% to 75%, depending on the level of need as determined by the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) income guidelines.
“Funding for the fee assistance program was raised at the Black Ties and Tennies, a Das Rec Scholarship Gala held prior to the opening of Das Rec. Through the New Braunfels Parks Foundation, many local businesses and community members contributed to the event that successfully raised over $90,000,” said Kelsey Heiden, Das Rec Manager. “In our inaugural year of the program, we were able to serve 47 families.”
Applications are available online at www.dasrec.com or in-person at Das Rec, New Braunfels Recreation Center located at 345 Landa Street. For additional information about Das Rec or the Fee Assistance Program please contact Kelsey Heiden at firstname.lastname@example.org or 830-221-4170.
