Welcome To The Economic Opportunity Council of Suffolk, Inc.
Our mission is to promote a goal of self-sufficiency by broadening the minds of children, revitalizing communities, and assisting families and children in need through the provision of services and to coordinate available federal, state, local and private resources.

The funding originates from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
We Can Help Low-Income Brookhaven Residents Impacted by COVID-19 Assist With Rental Arrears, or if Homeless,
Move Into Permanent Housing
Town of Brookhaven residents who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless due to the COVID-19 pandemic may be eligible to receive financial assistance to move into permanent housing or financial assistance with rental arrears. To qualify, applicants must demonstrate that they can continue to maintain their housing independently after receiving financial assistance. The funds originate from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Emergency Solutions Grants program, which assists those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless because of job loss, wage reduction, illness, or other hardships associated with COVID-19. Applicants’ household income must not exceed 50 percent of the HUD area median income, which is $63,300 for a family of four.
To find out if you are eligible, contact Jose Veliz, Director of Family Development, at 631-842-6100, ext. 1 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
