Financial Assistance Information
FREE believes that no rider should be turned away for financial reasons. We are able to fulfill this goal through the generosity of program supporters and grants.
Application for Financial Assistance Financial assistance is available to individuals participating in the program for the first time as well as those who have had their circumstances change. Financial assistance is awarded only after an individual has been accepted into a class.
FREE’s Board of Directors review Financial Assistance applications, with all information kept strictly confidential. Financial Assistance awards are based on the applicant’s need, including extenuating circumstances, and the amount of funds available each year. Financial assistance can be used only in the form of credit toward the cost of a class and cannot be used toward other FREE-sponsored activities.
