At Your First Meeting

We will need to see the following documents regarding your need for assistance.

  • Proof of Nassau County residency
  • Social Security cards for all members of the household
  • Proof of income for the entire household (last 4 paycheck stubs); income must be at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. Click here to see the current guidelines for 200% of the Federal Poverty Level on both a monthly and annual basis.
  • Current rental agreement, if seeking rent
  • Final Notice and current rental agreement, if seeking utility assistance.

Of course, walk-ins are always welcome, but we are better able to help you when you make an appointment.
