Apply Now for MVA Financial Assistance

Thanks to a recent grant from the Greater Polson Community Foundation, Mission Valley Aquatics now has a healthy scholarship fund for qualified community members who need financial assistance in order to participate in aquatic programming.

Applications are now available on our website,, and for pick-up in person at the aquatic center during normal business hours (6 a.m. – 8 p.m. weekdays, 12-4 p.m. weekends).

The Mission Valley Aquatics vision is to provide a safe and welcoming place for community members to recreate, congregate and be educated on water safety. Through various programming, we hope to introduce people to new and exciting activities that inspire healthy and happy living. Finally, we seek to employ responsible young people to be active leaders in their communities.

With the creation of the Financial Assistance Program, which involves an application process and requires annual renewal, we hope to encourage more children and adults to participate in our aquatic programs. With a little financial assistance, we believe that people of all ages, races, backgrounds, abilities and incomes will use and benefit greatly from this community’s new aquatic facility.

If you are interested in learning more about the application process, please take a moment to read over the application and acceptance requirements. Specific information must be included with your application in order for us to determine eligibility. All information is confidential and will not be shared with anyone outside the application review committee. Please, be sure to attach the appropriate documentation. We reserve the right to deny assistance based on insufficient/incomplete applications and/or sufficient subsidy/income.
