PROGRAM DETAILS

What types of rental properties are eligible for assistance? Properties with proof of valid and current tenancy are eligible.

Do I qualify if I currently reside in government-funded housing? Households that receive federal or state rent subsidies (where a percentage of the rent is paid by the household and the balance is subsidized by government) are not eligible.

How do I establish my household’s eligibility for this program? Eligibility includes being a full-time Hawaii resident occupying a primary residence with current and valid tenancy in the State of Hawaii; being 18 years of age or older; demonstrating a loss of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic; and having a total household income that does not exceed 100% of the HUD Area Median Income limits for 2020.

What income is included when determining my household income? All income from all household members is included.

Do I qualify if I received or am receiving housing relief assistance through another program? Households may qualify for housing relief assistance even if they receive assistance from another source, provided the total amount of assistance does not exceed the actual rent or mortgage. However, households that receive rent assistance under the HUD Emergency Solutions Grant program are ineligible for the State’s Rent Relief Program.

If I received unemployment benefits, Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, or Pandemic Unemployment Compensation, does that count towards my income for this program? Yes. However, SNAP (food stamps) is not included as income.

Do I need to claim eligible immigration status to apply for this program? No.

My household is a mixed-immigration status household. I do not claim eligible immigration status, but my child does. Can we still apply? Yes.

Can I apply if I live with roommates? You and your roommates may apply for assistance as a household. If one or more household members (roommates) are eligible for assistance, but all members on the lease do not apply or are ineligible for assistance, the rental assistance will be prorated.

What if I’m ineligible but am at risk of losing my tenancy for other reasons? Please go to Get Resources for additional resources.

If I don’t have a lease but am a month-to-month tenant am I still eligible to receive assistance? Yes, if your lease has expired but you continue to occupy your rental on a month-to-month basis, this is considered a valid and current tenancy.
