The application process for Section 8 low income housing in Hawai‘i has opened for the first time in more than a decade. Section 8 housing provides vouchers which pay for a large portion of rent and utilities.
To accommodate all applicants, state officials are accepting application through an online portal. The portal will be open for just three days… beginning next Thursday, August 16th, and closing on the 18th. In that time… city officials expect to receive around 12,000 applicants. And for those selected… the rent is usually around a $1000 a month.
