LIHU‘E — Women In Need, the Kupa‘a Kaua‘i CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act program, and the County of Kaua‘i’s Housing Agency announced the implementation of a program that offers emergency rental, mortgage and child-care assistance.

“This program can provide services for up to 160 households for rent/mortgage assistance and 55 families for child-care subsidy to Kaua‘i residents who have suffered a loss of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mayor Derek Kawakami.

“We are excited to be able to partner with the county and assist our community,” said Mary Scott-Lau, executive director of Women In Need. “Our goal is easing the financial burden that families are experiencing as a result of the pandemic.”
