County: Applications For ARPA Individual Funds Now Being Accepted


Officials with Los Alamos County announced today they have launched an Individual Assistance grant program utilizing funds from the U.S. Government’s COVID-19 American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).

Administered by the County’s Social Services division, the program provides up to $2,000 in financial assistance to eligible Los Alamos County residents to 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 his or her annual household income is at or below 225 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, an eligibility income level as established by the HCAP Policy.

For example, a family of four whose household income is at or below $62,437.50 per year would meet the criteria. 

Applications will be accepted through Jan. 13, 2023, online. Upon receipt, review and approval of the application agreement, the County Social Services Division plans to process payments over the next two months on a first come, first served basis.

For information, contact County Social Services Division at (505) 662-8068 or
