Affordable housing project in Waimea opening for applications
The County of Kaua‘i’s newest affordable housing project in Waimea is opening for applications on Friday, July 17.
“We are proud to join in announcing the opening of the newest affordable housing development on Kaua‘i. This project, made possible in part by $3 million in County funding, is bringing desperately needed affordable housing to the Westside and community of Waimea,” said Mayor Derek S.K. Kawakami. “We look forward to working with our partners the Ahe Group and EAH Housing to ensure that this project serves the housing needs of the Westside community for decades to come.”
The Waimea Huaka‘i affordable housing project has 35 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom apartments available. Rent at Waimea Huaka‘i will be based on 30% to 60% of the area median income and will range from $400 to $1,200 per month for eligible applicants.
Waimea Huaka‘i will be managed and operated by EAH housing, a nonprofit housing corporation that oversees numerous properties on Kaua‘i.
“EAH Housing is thrilled to grow its relationship with Ahe Group and the County of Kaua`i Housing Agency,” said Josh Romoff, director of new business for EAH Housing. “This new apartment community brings together non-profit, for-profit, and government agencies to support those in our communities that most need our help.”
