The purpose of the TDRPD Scholarship Program is to ensure access to District programs and services for District residents that cannot afford the fees. To help make recreation accessible to all, a limited number of scholarships are available for those who qualify.


An application is required of each applicant to start the process. It can be downloaded here Scholarship Program Application ENG (PDF) or picked up at the Community Recreation Center. Applications must be submitted in person at the Community Recreation Center. An application is evaluated on parents’/guardians’ household income for all dependents or the individual applicant. Applications are valid for 6 months. Patrons will need to reapply after 6 months.

When submitting the application at the Community Recreation Center, the applicant must provide proof that they are a resident of TDRPD, and the applicant must present one of the following forms of household income verification:

a. Prior year’s 1040 or 1040 EZ tax return clearly showing Adjusted Gross Income

b. WIC or CalFresh (food stamps) card from Nevada County

c. Participation in the National School Lunch Program qualifying for free or reduced meals through school
