Honolulu — Senator Gilbert Kahele (District 1, Hilo) is pleased to announce that Governor Neil Abercrombie has released $7.5M for Lanakila Homes. These funds will go towards renovations of the existing structures and buildings that are in urgent need of repair and maintenance.
“Appropriating the proper funds and financial support for Lanakila Homes has always been one of my top priorities,” said Senator Kahele, “I am glad that the Governor has released CIP funds specifically to address and improve the critical conditions at Lanakila Homes and finally assist those in need with decent and affordable housing.”
Lanakila Homes have sat vacant in decrepit conditions for years. Once the project is completed, it is expected to serve as public housing for families in need.
The Abercrombie Administration is dedicated to accelerating Hawaii’s economic recovery through a broad-ranged series of capital improvement actions called the New Day Work Projects.
