Recreation Fee Assistance

Financial Assistance for Recreation Program and Facility Fees
Richfield Recreation has a few different options to help alleviate the cost of programs and facility access. We want to include everybody and we're committed to helping people overcome financial barriers that stand in the way of participating in recreation programs.

Passport Program
Richfield residents in need of financial assistance with program fees or admission may apply for the Passport Assistance Program.  To apply, complete the application and return to the Community Center, 7000 Nicollet Ave, or email it to recreation@richfieldmn.gov. Applications must be submitted and renewed for each calendar year. If you are enrolled with the free or reduced lunch program through the Richfield Schools, receive financial aid or Social Security disability, or have other financial hardships, please provide documentation along with your application.

Richfield READY Financial Assistance
Passport is not accepted for all programs, particularly field trips and events for which tickets are purchased.  For information about financial assistance for these programs, you may be eligible to receive Richfield READY assistance.  For more information, visit Richfield Community Education's Richfield READY page or complete the online Richfield READY application

Emily Day Scholarship
Registrants of Wood Lake programs may ask about fee assistance through the Emily Day Fund, named after the beloved Richfield teacher and Wood Lake supporter. For information, please call Paul at Wood Lake at 612-861-9365.
