Housing Agency, Mayor Kawakami announces emergency rental, mortgage, and utility assistance program

June 18, 2020

The Kaua‘i County Housing Agency and the Office of the Mayor are implementing a new program that offers emergency rental, mortgage, and utility assistance.

“This program can provide payments of up to $1,500 per month for a maximum of three months to cover rent, mortgage, and utility payments for low- to moderate-income Kaua‘i residents who have suffered a loss of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mayor Derek S. K. Kawakami.

The County of Kaua‘i is partnering with Family Life Center and Mālama Pono Health Services to implement this program.   For more information and to apply for assistance, please contact these non-profit organizations directly. Family Life Center can be reached at 212-0850; Mālama Pono Health Services can be reached at 246-9577.

Update: Given the overwhelming community response, this program has reached its current capacity of applicants and is no longer accepting new applicants. Applications who have already been received and those already on the waiting list are being processed as quickly as possible.  If additional funds become available for this program, we will notify the community of the reopening of the program. Mahalo.
