Rental assistance available
Mayor Michael Victorino announced Monday that the federally funded Maui County Emergency Rental Assistance Program has begun accepting online applications from Maui County households.
The program can provide assistance towards bills going back to March 13, 2020, current bills, or future bills, depending on a household’s needs. Households which have received previous rent or utility assistance from other COVID-19 relief programs and need further assistance may also apply. Program staff will verify previous assistance received to prevent duplication of services.
Catholic Charities Hawai’i will administer the program in partnership with the county.

The Maui County Emergency Rental Assistance Program Help Line is 873-4673.
