Federal Funding for HCV Assistance

According to US Senator Brian Schatz, Hawai’i will be receiving more than $3-million in federal funding that will cover increased costs for the Housing Choice Voucher Program as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of the grant, counties will be able to increase the rent subsidies available to low income, elderly and disabled residents currently receiving HCV assistance and who have lost their jobs as a result of the pandemic.
