2021 ARPA Financial assistance program for individuals & families
Grants up to $5,000 per household
The purpose of this program is to provide financial assistance to eligible College Park individuals and families who have been directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Payments will be sent directly to the related vendor. Assistance for groceries will be in the form of gift cards to College Park stores.
Assistance funds are limited and payments for assistance awards will be made bi-weekly, until available funds are depleted.
In general, eligibility is determined by residency in the City of College Park and a financial hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The application form is intended to provide 1.) proof of residency, and 2.) proof of hardship/need. The description of hardship and requested assistance will help the City's review committee in determining the applicant's degree of relative need and enable us to make a fairer determination in the award of funding and determine that assistance requested fulfills the eligibility requirements.
Maximum financial assistance per household is $5,000 for eligible expenses. Only one application per household.
