The Huliau project will provide 12 two-bedroom units that will be utilized as long-term rental housing (permanent housing) for families with minor children transitioning out of homelessness. The project is currently under construction with completion anticipated for early 2021.
Ohana Zone funds will pay for on-site property management, case management, wraparound services and security services. In addition, State funding from the Hawaii Housing Finance and Development Corporation (HHFDC) Dwelling Unit Revolving Fund was used to support construction and planning.
The name Huliau is Hawaiian for “a turning point, a time of change.” The project will be administered by the County of Maui Department of Housing and Human Concerns Homeless Programs Division, and is located at the site of the old Maui College dorms in Kahului.
