Applying for financial aid is a very important step towards securing the needed resources to allow your student to attend a post-secondary institution of any kind. The sooner you apply, the more apt you are to have funding reserved for your collegiate experience if you qualify.
During the month of October of each year, you should complete the FAFSA ( https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa) -- This is a 'free' application. If you find yourself paying for this, then you are using the wrong website.
