The COVID-19 pandemic has had a broad financial impact on many of Nassau’s residents and Nassau County is committed to assisting those living in our community. The County has allocated federal funds from the American Rescue Plan to create the Boost Nassau Household Assistance Program. We invite you to apply for a one-time grant of $375 to support your household’s recovery.

Use of federal funds requires the collection of specific information included in this application. One application per household is allowed. A household consists of all the people who occupy a housing unit. Please have the following documents and information available before starting the application. Files may be PDF, JPEG, or PNG.
