Housing / Financial Assistance


The Honolulu Community Action Program, Inc. (“HCAP”) is partnering with Aloha United Way and the State of Hawaii to implement the Hale Kākou Rent, Deposit, and Utility Assistance Program. The purposes of the program are eviction prevention and rapid re-housing.

Hale Kākou will provide three types of assistance to those who are eligible: rent assistance, security deposits, and “companion” utility payments. Eligibility guidelines fall under two categories: homeless and at-risk of homelessness. Those who are currently homeless must be “house-ready,” meaning they must have a source of income, but lack a regular, fixed, and adequate nighttime residence. At-risk of homelessness are those facing impending eviction due to non-payment of rent or utilities. All households receiving assistance must demonstrate the potential to sustain future rent payments.

Anyone interested in applying for the program should contact one of HCAP’s 5 District Service Centers for more information and to make an appointment. They may also call the HCAP Main Office at 521-4531.
