HAWAIʻI ISLAND HOUSING COALITION

Blue and Pink Modern Tech Electronics an
OUR goal

Reduce the shelter burden for Hawaiʻi Island residents

by providing a spectrum of housing options.

In the 2019 Hawaiʻi Housing Planning Study, 30.6% of households on Hawaiʻi County were shelter burdened (paying over 30% of their monthly household income toward a shelter payment) and Hawaiʻi County needs 13,300 additional housing units by 2025.

A spectrum of affordable housing options is needed and only possible to achieve through community driven and government supported collaborative action.

Our strategies

Increase Home Production and Preservation

Support Land Use Policy that Promotes Equity and Affordability

Support the Development of Existing Parcels Tied to Infrastructure

Encourage the Use of Subsidized Voucher Programs

Establish a Revolving Fund for Housing Options
