Youth activity policy

For Children & Youth up to 17 years of age

It has come to the attention of the Town of Hudson Council that many towns and municipalities offer reimbursement to citizens in order to motivate children ages 17 years and under to become more active and to discover and develop various skills and abilities.  As such, the Town will issue reimbursement for some sport or leisure activities in the Town of Hudson.

Considering that Hudson Town Council is seeking to promote recreational activities and all the benefits they provide:

The Town of Hudson will reimburse 20% of course registration fees for young people who are 17 years of age or under, who live permanently in Hudson and who sign up for activities or courses not offered by the Town or one of its mandataries up to a maximum amount of $100 per year, per child.

The annual subsidy period is established as being January 1st to December 31st.

Procedures

Upon presentation of an official receipt and proof of residence, citizens will be asked to fill out a form which will include all relevant information. The amount to be reimbursed will then be calculated on the information provided. Any receipt(s) attached to the form will be photocopied by the Town. Residents will be reimbursed annually in the month of December. Only current-year receipts will be accepted and November 30th will be the deadline to submit reimbursement requests.

Certain conditions apply:

The activity or course must be offered by a non-profit organisation or by a reputable business.

The reimbursement calculation will be based on the submitted receipt amount for registration fees only. Cost of materials (e.g., costumes, CD’s, manuals, etc.), transportation or other related costs will not be eligible.

Public activities are not covered (i.e., open skiing, cinema, etc.)

Reimbursement will not be extended to sports or academic programs, or for specialized day camps.

 This program is open to Hudson residents only.
