Kaua‘i County officials are encouraging residents to apply for the State of Hawai‘i Rent Relief and Housing Assistance Program which will provide financial assistance for renters at risk of eviction for non-payment of rent due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The program is funded by the Federal CARES Act and will provide eligible renters with assistance in making monthly rent as well as financial counseling. The program’s monthly rent payments are up to $1,500 per household for residents in the County of Kaua‘i. Rent payments will not exceed the actual rent owed.
