Financial Assistance

The YMCA of Northern Utah is committed to ensuring that all children are able to access Y programs.  To ensure that a family’s ability to pay is not a barrier to access, the Y offers three forms of financial assistance:

1. Reduced Pricing: For families who do not qualify for formal financial assistance, the Y may still be able to help by offering a reduced program price.  We are generally able to offer a 5%-10% program price reduction thanks to generous funds made available through our annual fund (community donations campaign).  To request this, please contact the appropriate YMCA office listed below.

2. Childcare Subsidy Program from the Department of Workforce Services: This program is the YMCA’s primary financial assistance partner. To qualify, you will need to be a single parent household with the parent working at least 15 hours per week, or a dual-parent household with one parent working 30 hours per week and one parent working 15 hours per week.  To learn more and apply, go online or call 801.526.9675.

Through the support of donors, we are proud to be able to work with families to make sure that cost is not a barrier to participation. We offer an optional reduced cost rate for anyone that needs it, no additional paperwork required. Additional income-based financial assistance may also be available. Interested families are encouraged to talk with our staff or download a financial assistance application form, which can be found below. All youth receive the same program experience regardless of the price paid.  

3. YMCA Financial Assistance Program: For those requiring additional assistance, funds have been made available to the YMCA through our generous community donors. The YMCA Financial Assistance Program provides funds on a sliding scale based on income. To apply, please contact the appropriate YMCA office below.
