3 Steps to Apply for Sliding Scale!

In an effort to remain as inclusive a community as possible, we are adding a new sliding scale membership option based on your income level, applicable to all membership plans. If you’re interested in applying for a sliding scale rate, please following these instructions:

  1. Review the Sliding Scale Worksheet to determine your Net Monthly Household Income (NMHI). This worksheet is solely for your use and we will never request to review it.
  2. Once you have determined your NMHI, refer to the Sliding Scale Chart to determine the appropriate sliding scale rate for the plan of your interest.
  3. Once you have your sliding scale rate, please email us at for next steps. 

Please note that for those willing and able, it is an option to pay more for membership rates in order to support those less able to pay.
