The Duluth Amateur Hockey Association has a limited amount of funds available in the Hank Jensen Fund for financial aid. All applicants will be reviewed to try to allocate the funds where they are most needed. As a condition of this financial aid, families receiving assistance are expected to contribute in other ways to youth hockey programs at the rink/association level. This would include helping out with concessions, rink maintenance, flooding, fund-raising efforts, etc. You will not be asked to do more or less than any other active family member of the rink or association.
Information on the application form will be kept confidential. However, the DAHA committee reviewing the application reserves the right to request additional documentation to verify income (this will include copy of latest tax return, W-2 tax information, etc.) and may ask your rink director for information on participation in rink/association activities.
Eligibility is determined if your household income is within these guidelines. Include all adults and children in the household, whether related or unrelated. Include household members temporarily away from home, such as a college student. Include gross incomes (before any deductions). Except – Only for farm and self-employment income only, use net income after business expenses. A loss from farm or other self-employment may not be subtracted from other household incomes; the loss must be treated as a zero income from self-employment.
