Hempstead Housing Authority


How do I apply?

Hempstead Housing Authority (HHA) only has limited funding available from HUD. Our public housing apartments have a low turnover rate as well.  We assist the most families possible within the resources provided to us by HUD. The waiting list remains closed if there are enough families subsidized and enough families on the list to meet foreseeable funding and apartment availability. 

HHA does not keep a list of interested applicants that want an application when the list opens.  Notification about when any lists are open is done by advertisement in the local media, the HHA voice message system, notices distributed to local community centers, Village of Hempstead Library, community organizations, and other means as deemed practical by HHA.

When our waiting list is open, we accept applications online at https://hempsteadny.housingmanager.com/.

We are accepting applications for studio and one bedroom elderly apartments for our buildings located at:


General MacArthur Senior Village, 260 Clinton Street, Hempstead, NY  11550

Totten Towers, 20 Totten Street, Hempstead, NY  11550

We will be accepting applications continuously online from 5/23/2017 at 10:00 am until 6/6/2017 at 5:00 pm.  For more information please see the notices below:
