COUNTY OF MAUI – PROJECT-BASED VOUCHER PROGRAM (SECTION 8)

PROJECT-BASED VOUCHER FOR HALE MAHAOLU EWALU PHASE I

SENIOR HOUSING COMPLEX IN KULAMALU TOWN CENTER

OPENING OF APPLICATION AND WAIT LIST


The County of Maui, in partnership with Hale Mahaolu, announces it will be accepting applications for the Project-Based Voucher Program, which will provide rental housing subsidies for use at Hale Mahaolu Ewalu Phase I Senior Housing Complex. Applications will be distributed at the County of Maui Housing Choice Voucher Program office beginning on August 1, 2018 and ending on August 15, 2018.  Applications will not be distributed at Hale Mahaolu housing offices.

The Project-Based Voucher Program will provide rental assistance to qualified low-income families and individuals whose head of household is 62-years-old or older.  Applications are exclusive to the Hale Mahaolu Ewalu Phase I project and will be available for pick up and return as follows:
Time Period: Beginning at 8:30 am on Wednesday August, 1, 2018 until
4:30 pm on Wednesday August 15, 2018.
Location: County of Maui - Department of Housing and Human Concerns
Housing Choice Voucher Program Office

Project: Hale Mahaolu Ewalu Phase I Senior Housing Project
Pukalani, Maui, Hawaii
36 - one bedroom / one bath units
  2 - two bedroom / one bath units
Applications must be picked up and returned in person by 4:30 pm on Wednesday August 15, 2018. In instances of reasonable accommodation, applicants may request an application via telephone at (808) 270-1748. The time period for submission of applications will not be changed. 

Applications will be selected and ordered using a random lottery system.  Not all applicants will necessarily qualify.  By randomly selecting applications received for wait list placement, the process is equitable.  The time and date of receipt of an individual’s application during the application time period has no bearing on whether an application will be selected for the waitlist.  There is no advantage to applying immediately after the application period opens. Applicants will be contacted about placement on the waitlist approximately 45 days after the end of the application time period.

Applicants will undergo an eligibility determination by the County of Maui Housing Choice Voucher Program Office.  Applicants who are found eligible for the Project-Based Voucher Program will be referred to Hale Mahaolu for a secondary application and screening process required by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program. Applicants must qualify under the standards of both programs in order to gain tenancy.  

The Housing Choice Voucher Program assistance covers the rental portion exceeding approximately 30% of an eligible family’s monthly income.    Acceptance to the Hale Mahaolu Ewalu Phase I project is based on income verification and eligibility requirements.  Maximum income levels, based on family size, are as follows:
Family Size Income Limit
1 $ 33,050
2 $ 37,800
3 $ 42,500
4 $ 47,200
