Guidelines for the issuance of Bingo licenses are mandated by the New York State Racing and Wagering Board. The completed application form must include the organization's BC Number, which is issued by New York State. The fee for each occasion is $18.75 and must be paid by check under the organization's name. The Town of Hempstead is responsible for administration and inspections. For your convenience, forms may be downloaded from the New York State Gaming Commission website and submitted to the Hempstead Town Clerk's Office.
