Sen. Hirono announces over $2.5M for affordable housing and community development for Hawaii Island

MEDIA RELEASE

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Mazie K. Hirono (D-Hawaii) today announced $22,357,301 million in funding for affordable housing and community development programs through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The funding is comprised of allocations from the following programs: Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS, Emergency Solutions Grants, and Housing Trust Fund.

“Federal funding is essential to sustain Hawaii’s momentum in addressing homelessness and increasing affordable housing. Yet, the President’s budget eliminates key housing programs including CDBG and HOME,” said Senator Hirono. “It is critical that Hawaii continues to receive its fair share of federal resources to support safe, secure, and affordable housing.”

The total funding amounts from the five HUD programs will be allocated as follows:

  • Hawaii County: $2,524,362
  • Kauai County: $709,098
  • Maui County: $1,803,099
  • City and County of Honolulu: $10,629,504
  • Funding to be administered to the counties by the HUD Honolulu Field Office: $6,691,238.
