Kukuiola Village is a 30 unit emergency shelter that is currently under construction and will be located on 15 acres of a larger State property in West Hawaii. The program is supported by Ohana Zone funding and will be administered by the County of Hawaii. The estimated completion date for Kukuiola Village is December 2020.
The target population for the program will be single adults and couples, and the program will provide emergency shelter as well as navigate homeless individuals to permanent housing options.
Kukuiola Village is a collaborative effort between the State and the County. In addition to Ohana Zone funding, the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) provided land for the property through an Executive Order to the Hawaii Housing Finance and Development Corporation (HHFDC), and HHFDC provided funding to the County to assist with the development and construction of the site, as well as the environmental assessment and planning process.
