ARPA Individual Assistance Grant

Los Alamos County has implemented an individual assistance grant program utilizing funds form the U.S. government's COVID-19 American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). Administered by the Los Alamos County Social Services Division, the program can provide financial assistance to eligible Los Alamos County residents. The program will grant up to $2,000 in relief funds to those who need help with food insecurity, rent, utilities, technology, or other household expenses that have been difficult to cover due to the global pandemic. 

To qualify, an applicant must be a Los alamos County resident who can demonstrate that his/her annual household income is at our below 225% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, per the 2022 table (as seen below and in the application). An eligibility income level as established by the HCAP Policy. For example, a family of four whose household income is at or less than $62,437.50 per year, would meet the criteria.
