Need help covering a class or membership? We want to make professional-level fabrication and design skills more accessible regardless of income.

Income-based rates are 20 – 70% lower than our standard rates, and are available to those in households earning 80% of the Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area’s median income or less, based on the chart below.

To receive income-based rates for one year please complete the questions above and complete checkout. This will create a user account and allow us to attach the discounted rate to all membership, storage, and class & event purchases you make for the term. Your information will always be kept confidential, and you will receive an email with more information when your rate has been approved.
