Affordable Housing for Maui Families

Housing affordability is a pressing issue throughout the islands – and an especially pressing problem on Maui, where 10% of households live in poverty.

Solving some of our biggest challenges calls for diverse voices to have a seat at the table. Dollars are important but so is the ability to bring people together. This collaborative approach is what makes the House Maui Initiative so powerful. We need everyone—for-profit and nonprofit home builders, government, community stakeholders and citizens of Maui—working in tandem to give Maui families the housing they need now, and for generations to come.

One tangible result of this collective action: a partnership between HCF and Hawaiian Community Assets—a HUD-certified housing counseling agency and a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI)—to launch a Financial Opportunity Center (FOC) that will help thousands of Maui residents into housing by building their financial capability.
