Affordable housing in Kalihi looking bright

New affordable housing projects done with private and public partnerships is the future for low income housing in Kalihi.


Hawaii lawmakers are considering several bills aimed at bolstering rental and low-income housing in the state.

People in Hawaii could see more micro apartments, elder housing units and rental properties if the bills are successful.

Other bills aim to expand housing options for homeless people and to prevent shelters from compelling homeless people to buy food there.

Hawaii's cost of living and homelessness rate are among the highest of any state in the country.

Lawmakers will consider the legislation at a hearing on Wednesday.
