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.

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
