People who are only partial-year residents of the county are welcome to join ANV; however, they will have to pay the full-year membership fee.
Associate memberships are entitled to receive only a portion of ANV services, so $375 of the $500 fee may be deductible. Full membership fee is not deductible.
An important ANV goal is to make village services and programs available to every eligible Arlington resident, regardless of ability to pay. A financial assistance fund exists to subsidize membership fees. For 2016, the maximum income levels to use as guidelines in determining need are: $38,250 for a one-person household and $43,700 for a two-person household. A person seeking assistance will be asked to provide the first page of their last year’s federal tax return as proof of their annual income level. Persons who meet these income guidelines pay a reduced membership fee of $100 per year for an individual, with an additional $50 for each additional household member joining ANV.
Volunteer hours cannot be used to reduce the membership fee.
Full members are eligible to receive any of the services ANV offers. Associate members can take part in all social activities and outings, educational programs, daily check-in calls, 55+ pass, and Washington Consumer CHECKBOOK – any service except those involving a volunteer coming to the member’s home or providing transportation.
Full Individual Membership is $500. Full Household Membership is $500 for the first person plus $250 for each additional member from the same household. Associate Membership is $500 for either an individual or household.
