Hempstead, NY - December 2, 2015 - The Village of Hempstead Community Development Agency (CDA) recently completed its third Residential Rehabilitation project, as part of the Village of Hempstead’s ongoing initiative to support senior citizens in the Village. The CDA assisted a resident in the Village in replacing her garage roof, garage door, siding, gutters and spouts before the onset of winter.

“The Village of Hempstead is fortunate enough to have a thriving senior citizen community and we make every effort to support the health and safety of our residents,” said Village of Hempstead Mayor Wayne J. Hall Sr. “The Residential Rehabilitation program is vital to the wellbeing of our Village, and we work tirelessly to ensure residents have access to the assistance they need.”

In order to qualify for participation in the CDA’s Residential Rehabilitation program, seniors and disabled homeowners must meet certain income requirements set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and require assistance with weatherization improvements, rectifying code violations, making homes compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act requirements, removing lead-based paint or other necessary home repairs.  To date, the CDA has completed three residential rehabilitation projects within the Village under their Community Development Block Grant funding administrated by Nassau County Office of Community Development.

“The Village of Hempstead is proud of its long history of dedication to ensuring the welfare of our residents and community,” said Deputy Mayor Louis Figueroa, “Residents who believe they may qualify for assistance are encouraged to reach out to the CDA.”
