A new program to provide rental relief for Department of Hawaiian Home Lands Applicant Waiting List beneficiaries launched last month in partnership with Aloha United Way. Eligible native Hawaiians on DHHL’s Applicant Waiting List who have experienced a loss of income as a result of COVID-19 may receive help for the payment of their security deposit and/or rent for up to six months.

To apply for DHHL’s COVID-19 Emergency Rental Assistance Program, call AUW at 2-1-1. For more details on rental relief for general lessees, licensees, and permittees, go to dhhl.hawaii.gov/covid-19/lmd or call (808) 620-9500.
