The Inc. Village of Hempstead Community Development Agency is a public benefit corporation established in 1964 under Title 15 Section 585-A of the General Municipal law of the State of New York. 

Initial efforts under taken by the CDA in the 1960's involved the removal of substandard housing in areas surrounding the downtown. Included in this effort was the Mitchell-Lama apartments on Jackson St. and Washington St. and the Washington Square apartments between Washington St. and Clinton St. south of Jackson St. Commercial redevelopment centered around the construction of a Holiday Inn and a seven story office building on Clinton St. south of Fulton St. The Holiday Inn was converted into subsidized apartments for seniors and families.

In the 1970's the CDA was part of the effort to realign Greenwich St and Main St. This allowed for a smooth flow of traffic into the downtown of the Village from the south. 
In the years since, the CDA has been a vital partner in the creation of Affordable Housing, Senior Housing, and the redevelopment of commercial spaces.
