Rental Apartments

Effective June 1, 2019, the Town of Hempstead Housing Authority waiting list will be closed and the Housing Authority will not be accepting new applications for housing in its 14 rental complexes. Applications for the Golden Age Coop Housing Program will still be accepted.

The Town of Hempstead Housing Authority owns and operates 1,309 apartments at 14 separate locations throughout the Town of Hempstead, stretching from the Queens border to the Town of Oyster Bay. The primary goal of the Housing Authority has been, and will continue to be, our commitment to provide safe, sanitary, housing in the most efficient and cost effective manner.

There are efficiency (EFF) apartments for single persons over the age of 62; 1-bedroom (1 BR) apartments for couples with head of household 62 years or older. The Housing Authority also accepts applications for family apartments consisting of 2 to 4 bedrooms, available at 2 of our complexes.

All apartments include range, refrigerator, tile bath, emergency alarm system, etc. Those developments catering exclusively to senior citizens have air-conditioned recreation/social halls. Activities for residents and community members, coordinated by the Town of Hempstead Department of Senior Enrichment, are available some weekdays.

The rentals for these apartments will be 30% of income. Utilities are included for all apartments, except at Roosevelt and Westbury, where a utility allowance is subtracted from monthly rent.
