Housing service providers get funding
Two affordable housing service providers in Maui County will receive $167,639 in federal funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Hawaii U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz announced on Monday.
The funding was awarded to help make sure low-income seniors at HUD-assisted multifamily properties continue to receive health and wellness services.
The awardees are Hale Mahaolu, which received $142,507, and Hale Mahaolu Ekolu Inc., which got $25,132.
“Everyone should have access to affordable housing and the care and resources to meet their needs,” said Schatz, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee. “This federal funding will ensure that older adults who need support can continue to live independently in quality, affordable housing with wraparound services needed to stay healthy, safe and fulfilled.”
