Dear Resident,I am pleased to inform you that the Nassau County Main Street Recovery Program portal has been reactivated and eligible small businesses and non-profits that experienced financial hardship due to COVID-19 can apply for grants for up to $10,000. This additional ARPA funding, totaling $10 million, was approved by the Legislature and is now available to those in need on a first-come, first-serve basis. Grants can be used to cover expenses such as inventory/supplies, rent, utilities, purchase or lease payments for equipment, operating costs and emergency maintenance, to name a few.Small businesses are a major component in creating and maintaining a thriving economy in Nassau County. While many small businesses have survived the pandemic that started back in March 2020, many are still in the recovery stage and can greatly benefit from the financial assistance this program provides.If you’re interested in learning more and/or applying for a grant, please visit the Main Street Recovery Grant website by CLICKING HERE or by scanning the QR Code below.
As always, please feel free to contact me with any thoughts and ideas you may have with respect to the County or on any particular issue that you think I may be able to assist you with. You may contact me at (516) 571-6214 or by email at LSchaefer@NassauCountyNY.gov .
Sincerely,Laura M. SchaeferLegislator, District 14
