Change of Income or Household Composition Forms
Whenever your income changes or you have a change in family composition (persons moving in or out of your household) you are required to report the change to your Housing Specialist. He/she will determine if or when a change in rent is required.
Housing Search Resources
The Nassau County Office of Housing does not locate housing or have property listings. Please refer to the following resources:
Every household that receives housing assistance must undergo a regular (annual) recertification. Approximately 60-90 days before your anniversary date, we will schedule and conduct a re-inspection of your unit. We will also send you forms to verify your income and eligibility for the program. You must respond by the due dates stated in the letter. Failure to do so may lead to termination of your rental assistance.
