Youth, Family & Seniors

Snohomish County has allocated approximately $40.4 million of its ARPA allocation to initiatives that support youth, families, and seniors. The goal of this funding is to stabilize and improve accessibility and affordability of high quality child care and early childhood education, support youth who have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and virtual school, and boost crucial programs like senior supports, basic needs supports, and food access.
