HUD Provides COVID Relief for Native Hawaiians

President’s American Rescue Plan invests $5 million for housing.

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Marcia Fudge reported the investment of $5 million in funding for Native Hawaiians. The American Rescue Plan provides this assistance through the Native Hawaiian Housing Block Grant for the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) for those affected by the coronavirus. The funding will go toward construction, rehabilitation, infrastructure, and rental assistance to Native Hawaiians.

“The American Rescue Plan made a historic investment toward the housing needs of low-income communities,” Secretary Fudge said. “HUD is supporting the swift implementation of the funding allocations to get relief to communities. With this funding, DHHL will be able to respond to the unique needs of the Native Hawaiian community.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That Secretary Fudge would seek God’s wisdom as she leads the housing department.
  • For the funding and grants for housing provided under the president’s covid aid plan to provide effective relief.
  • For the minority communities that have been impacted by the pandemic.
