Update December 26, 2013
Congress continues to discuss the federal budget for 2014. Even after Congress approves a budget bill, it takes several months for the federal government to notify the City of the exact amount of funding we will receive for the program.
If Congress decreases Section 8 program funding, the program rules require reducing the number of housing vouchers to match available funds. According to the program rules, vouchers that were last issued will be the first to be terminated. If assistance is terminated due to insufficient funding, families will be eligible to reapply when the waiting list is reopened.
If your family is interested in learning about the Family Self-Sufficiency Program, which can help you increase your income through employment and link you to community resources, please contact us at 768-7093.
We are reducing administrative expenses wherever possible to maximize available funding. We ask for your kokua in keeping costs down by coming to your scheduled office appointments on time and providing follow-up documentation when requested. Please keep your inspection appointments and have your unit ready to pass inspection on the first try. To further reduce our operating costs, we will be asking that you provide an email address for routine correspondence.
Please monitor this website for any updates. Mahalo for your understanding.

Update August 23, 2013
Effective October 1, 2013, the one-bedroom payment standard will be reduced from $1,303 to $1,202. The reduction in payment standard is the City efforts to provide the maximum amount of assistance to families that are earning 30% to 50% of the Median Family Income (MFI) that the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has budgeted for the City and County of Honolulu.

Update May 31, 2013
The City has received its funding notice for the Section 8 program for calendar year 2013. We anticipate that we will be able to continue assistance through the rest of the year for our participating families. Funds to manage the program, however, have been cut substantially. We ask for your continued patience as we must comply with all program requirements but with reduced funding.
