Lahaina Homeowner Recovery Program - Hawai`i Community Lending

(Announced May 2, 2024)

Lahaina Homeowner Recovery Program

Hawai‘i Community Lending (HCL) was created by native Hawaiians on Maui who were unable to qualify for a Hawaiian Homelands lease. HCL was created to fund the affordable housing ecosystem from homebuyer to homebuilder to homeowner. Working to help solve the statewide housing crisis, HCL offers products and services for local and native Hawaiians to build, buy, and save homes from foreclosure. HCL started its work in 2002 in the Paukukalo homestead to help native Hawaiians obtain mortgages to receive their lease and get on the land.

HCL expanded their Maui roots to serve native Hawaiians across the state. In 2007, HCL assisted Leiali‘i homestead families in Lahaina obtain mortgages. 16 years later, when the August 8th fires struck, our team moved quickly to launch the Kanaka Anti-Displacement Fund to bring services to the 104 impacted Leiali‘i families, committing ourselves to help them prevent displacement and rebuild.

Now, HCL has been called on to expand our services under the Lahaina Homeowner Recovery Program to serve all Lahaina owner-occupant homeowners.
