DarkSide-LowMass is a tonne-scale liquid argon time projection chamber being planned by the Global Argon Dark Matter Collaboration (GADMC) to search for WIMP-like dark matter with masses below 10 GeV/c^2, achieving low thresholds with a design optimized for an electron-counting analysis. Building upon the success of DarkSide-50's light dark matter search, DarkSide-LowMass will aim to achieve sensitivity to the solar neutrino floor with a tonne-year exposure. This talk will present sensitivity projections for the DarkSide-LowMass experiment, based on simulations of expected backgrounds.
