Income Assistance Program

For qualified Benicia families, we offer an income assistance program that allows members within the qualifying household to receive 50% off classes and programs.  To qualify you must live in Benicia and pay utilities at a Benicia address.

All enrichment classes, afterschool programs, summer camps, and swim lessons are eligible for the discount.  Adult sport leagues, facility rentals, drop in programs (ex: open gym sports, Kindergym/Wiggle Room) and multiple use passes/punch cards (ex: lap swim, rec swim, fitness) are not eligible.

Families must apply on an annual basis for approval.  The income assistance program expires in May of each year, at which time a new application with updated documentation must be submitted. We are not able to pull a previous application to provide documentation, so please keep a copy of your application, should you need access to the documents at a later date.

Once all the required documentation is submitted, the approval process will take up to 1 week.


Please download and complete the attached forms (pdfs at bottom of page), and submit application with required documentation.  Applications may also be picked up at the Benicia Community Center.

Below is the chart that is used to determine eligibility.
