Awards are based on financial need and/or special circumstances at
the girl level, not the troop level. Applications must be completed by
the individual and any applications submitted on behalf of the troop
itself will not be accepted.
At times, a family may not qualify for financial assistance under the income guidelines, but may have extenuating circumstances that the council will consider when determining eligibility and award amounts. In that case, the circumstances must be clearly explained for consideration.
Families who have received financial assistance in previous membership years will not be guaranteed financial assistance for future membership years.
