The North Hempstead Housing Authority (NHHA) provides comfortable and affordable housing in a safe and secure living environment for low and moderate income residents at its senior/disabled buildings, Magnolia Gardens in Westbury and Manhasset Valley in Manhasset. Both buildings are updated and impeccably maintained. The Housing Authority also owns and manages the beautiful Homestead Apartments in Westbury which opened its doors in 2020. The Homestead Apartments are solely for seniors 62 and older. This agency is proud of the housing it provides and works with local officials to bring social enhancements and activities to our community.

Since the Coronavirus quarantine has been lifted in New York State, the housing authority has made the building’s common areas available for its resident’s use. Please continue to follow the CDC’s recommendations by washing your hands regularly and maintaining social distance when possible. While face masks are now optional, the housing authority strongly encourages the use of face masks for your protection.

North Hempstead Housing Authority’s staff will be addressing your work orders, however, when staff members or vendors come to your apartment to make repairs, it is encouraged that you wear a face covering or mask as well as maintain social distance. Also, where possible, if you have questions or concerns, please call before making a visit to office to limit being in the small, confined space of the office’s vestibule.

We appreciate your full cooperation in ensuring the safety of all residents and staff. Please stay safe and be well. For more information about the coronavirus
