Business development, 

Workforce initiatives and 

DOWNTOWN Revitalization



The Village of Hempstead Community Development Agency has launched and expanded several housing initiatives to promote neighborhood stabilization and long-term affordable housing for current and future village residents.  

The four DOZ overlay zones do not replace the underlying zoning rules and regulations that currently exist in the DOZ. They provide an alternative option for landowners to use in developing and redeveloping their land and buildings within the DOZ.

The CDA funds programs to improve both the residential and commercial sectors within the Village of Hempstead. 

The CDA offers assistance to public service organizations to reduce blight, and improve opportunities for low and moderate income residents.
