Aloha and Welcome!

The Hawaii Public Housing Authority helps provide Hawai`i residents with affordable housing and shelter without discrimination. HPHA efforts focus on developing affordable rental and supportive housing, public housing and the efficient and fair delivery of housing services to the people of Hawai`i.

At the Hawaii Public Housing Authority, we have renewed our focus and commitment to providing the best possible service to the public.  We have even changed the way we answer the phone to help us remind you and ourselves that as public servants, we have the honor of serving this great State of Hawaii everyday.  


With this simple telephone greeting, "Aloha, HPHA.  How may I serve you?" we pledge to do our very best and thank you for allowing us to serve you.


Governor David Ige declared October 22, 2015 "Hawaii Public Housing Authority Employee Recognition Day" and Senator Suzanne Chun Oakland, Senator Glenn Wakai, Mr. Robert Sato (representing Senator Breene Harimoto) and members of the Senate recognized and honored the Hawaii Public Housing Authoirty for outstanding service to the people of Hawaii.


ATTENTION PHONE SCAMS AND FRAUD ALERT for applicants and current Section 8 Voucher holders - Please be aware that Housing Authorities do not charge fees for participation in the Section 8 program. Housing Authorities won't reach out to you by phone or email to suggest that you join a waiting list or pay a fee to be on a waiting list. A Housing Authority will never ask you to wire money or pay with a prepaid card. Those are sure signs of scams and you should report any such activity to the local HUD office or the HPHA's Office of the Executive Director at 832-4694 immediately.
