Just call (808) 501-1413! The Coordination Center offers a first point of contact for Hawaiʻi County residents who may need assistance finding or maintaining stable housing. This may include connection to programs to help find housing, rent assistance, financial counseling, replacing essential documents, family supports, and other resources as needed.
Membership is free for East Hawaiʻi families and benefits include access to emergency supplies like diapers, wipes, hygiene supplies; a variety of parenting supports including coaching, classes, informal talk-story sessions; special events and activities; as well as guidance for families experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Our trained staff is here to help.
At this time, we are no longer disbursing rental and utility assistance and are not accepting new applications. The County of Hawai’i is working to develop a new rent and utility assistance program and anticipates this new program will be available in early 2023. Renters are encouraged to call the Coordination Center to get connected to financial resources and services or visit www.HawaiiCountyERAP.org.
