What is RAP?
RAP is a Recreation Assistance Program developed by the Greendale Park and Recreation Department. The Greendale Park and Recreation Department recognizes that some of the residents of the Village of Greendale require financial assistance to attend certain recreational activities. RAP provides these residents with the opportunity to attend these programs at a discounted rate.How are funds for RAP provided?
Each year the Greendale Park and Recreation Department holds a benefit auction to raise funds. A portion of the funds raised are used for the Recreation Assistance Program along with money “rounded up” at registration time.Who May Apply for RAP?
Any family or individual who is a resident of the Village of Greendale may apply for the Recreation Assistance Program. To qualify, residents must meet Federal Income & Financial Support Guidelines (Income Eligibility Guidelines for the Federal Government will be acceptable guidelines for the Department to follow encompassing household size and annual income.) If families qualify for the free and reduced price school meals program through the School District, a copy of that application may be submitted instead of the Recreation Assistance application form.How Do I Apply for RAP?
