Due to COVID risks, the Nassau CARES office will no longer be open to the public. If you have documents to deliver to the CARES Team, please leave them in the locked drop box located outside of the Administration Building.
The Nassau CARES office is committed to the safety of our residents and staff. Due to the number of applications for assistance and the restrictions on in-person meetings, the review process for the Nassau CARES grant applications is still underway. Staff are working hard to process these applications as fast as possible, and applicants will be notified as soon as decisions are made.
Thank you for your patience.
