Who is Eligible for Financial Assistance (“Scholarships”)
Charitable donations support the Scholarship program, which helps people with disabilities who live on low incomes to pay the CFW membership and activity fees. Funding is limited.
- Assistance can be used for a gym membership and one activity a week (e.g., guided exercise, FES, NMES) for three months.
- Assistance will be available on a sliding scale based on need. Need is determined by household size and income, and assistance will range from 100% to 25% of fees.
- Veterans with disabilities may apply regardless of household income and are eligible for 100% FREE gym membership and one intervention a week.
People with the greatest need, who have never received assistance in the past, will receive the highest priority.
The Community Fitness & Wellness Gym is located at 250 E. Liberty (top right of map, as seen to the left) – about 2 blocks away from Frazier Rehab Institute. Click map image for larger version.
