More than 250 households are receiving help from Maui County’s Emergency Rental and Utility Assistance Program. Residents have received more than $675,000 to make overdue rent and utility payments.
“Those who think they might be eligible should look into the program and apply for help,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “The Federal Treasury has given Maui Country quite a bit of funding because so many here were laid off or lost work hours due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many fell behind on rent and utility payments, so we’re encouraging those residents to apply for financial help through this program.”
