Building the economy of the future

We believe that a community’s well-being is tied to the health of its economy. We will advocate for paths that lead to sustainable communities and healthy natural and social environments for our keiki.

Housing

A keiki’s living environment impacts their ability to learn. Many families are struggling to survive as the price of housing increases year after year. Every child deserves a home where they can grow and thrive.


Finding a Home Shouldn’t Be a Burden

Housing is a Hawai‘i family’s greatest expense, averaging $1,362/month for a 2 bedroom apartment.1

57% of Hawai‘i renters and 30% of homeowners were housing burdened in 2015, meaning they spent at least 30% of their income on housing.2

Hawai‘i’s rate of homelessness is nearly 3X the national average.3


How we support housing Hawai‘i’s families:

  • Delivering 1,350 new dwelling units, including 456 kama‘āina housing units priced for local families, over the past 5 years in O‘ahu's urban core.
  • Working on plans to deliver 8,000 to 10,000 new homes in the urban core of O‘ahu over the next 10-20 years with the support of community, development, and government partners.
