City of Kenmore to receive a total of $6.4 million in ARPA funds


As part of the the American Rescue Plan Act passed by the Biden Administration to help people respond to and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Kenmore has partnered with the Northshore Schools Foundation to assist with distributing $1 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) direct cash assistance to low-income residents.


To help with the application and distribution of the funds, the city has set up the website KenmoreCares.org. Kenmore residents who have a household income at or below 30% of the King County area median income (AMI), which is about $35,000 for a family of 4, and have experienced negative economic impacts from the Covid-19 pandemic can apply for assistance through the website.

The application asks for proof of residency in the City of Kenmore, which may include:

  • Rental or lease agreements with the signature of the owner/landlord

  • Deeds or titles to residential real property

  • Mortgage bills

  • Home utility bills (including cellular phone)

  • Medical or employee documents

And proof of income indicating that your family income is at or below 30% of the Average Median Income in King County. That may be in the form of:

  • W2 form

  • Earnings statement on a payroll stub

  • Bank statement

  • 1099 form

  • Benefit award letter

  • Retirement benefit letter
