Sliding Scale

A sliding scale is way for people who can afford to pay more provides a fund for people who could otherwise not afford it, to pay less.


Decide where you are on the scale by using a combination of your Annual Income as well as looking at your assets.  You may be asked to fill out an application.

Consider PAYING MORE on the scale if you: 

-own the home you live in or multiple homes

-have investments, retirement accounts, or inherited money

-travel recreationally

-have access to family money and resources in times of need

-work part time by choice

-have a relatively high degree of earning power due to level of education, gender and racial privilege, class background, etc.

Consider PAYING LESS on the scale if you:
-are supporting children or have other dependents
-have little access to higher education
-your basic living expenses are difficult to obtain
-receive public assistance
-have immigration-related expenses
-are an elder with limited financial support
-are an unpaid community organizer

I also modeled my income-based scale to the Third Root Community Health Center
