Hamilton Uses ARP Funds to Offer Families Reimbursement for Hamilton’s Youth Recreation League Enrollment

September 21, 2021

HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, NJ (MERCER)–Hamilton Township will use a $100,000 of American Rescue Plan (ARP) funding towards a program to help reimburse parents/guardians for the costs of registering their child in a non-profit youth recreation league in 2021. 

The program provides for up to $200/child in reimbursement of their registration fees. Due to the rules of the federal funds, this program is limited to Hamilton children who are enrolled in a free/reduced lunch program through their school. All information submitted will be kept confidential. Parents/guardians can apply for more than one league – for example if their child participates in youth soccer and youth baseball, they can get reimbursement for both.

“Over the last 18 months, Hamilton’s children have faced significant obstacles to their normal childhood experiences,” stated Mayor Jeff Martin. “Hamilton’s youth recreation leagues provide children with physical fitness, but just as importantly, social and emotional learning opportunities as well.”

Any parent/guardian looking to participate in this reimbursement program may find the form at www.HamiltonNJ.com/Recreation under ‘Additional Links’. It will be up to each youth sports league to compile forms and submit the forms to the Hamilton Division of Recreation. All submissions must be received no later than October 15, 2021.

For questions or further assistance please contact the Hamilton Township Division of Recreation at (609) 890-4028.
