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
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:
Earnings statement on a payroll stub
Benefit award letter
Retirement benefit letter
