Homestead Homeownership Center
320 sq ft renovated shipping container to serve homestead and waitlist families on Molokai and Kauai to facilitate home building and financing.
West Kauai Enterprise Center
West Kauai Enterprise Center – The West Kauai Enterprise Center was built in 2012 to create community space inside the Kekaha Homestead on Hawaiian Home Lands. It is operated by the HCDC partner, the West Kauai Hawaiian Homestead Association (WKHHA) in service to residents. The facility, funded by the Kauai Community College and HUD is a wonderful expression of self-determination, to identify a facility need, and working together to create it.
Anahola Sports Complex
Anahola Sports Complex – The Anahola Sports Complex is the vision of the Anahola Hawaiian Homestead Association (AHHA), to create a recreation economy that fits with the rural and agricultural nature of the Anahola region.
Envisioned to develop basketball courts, baseball diamonds, and other sporting facilities, the complex is intended to provide year-round recreational activities to local residents and visiting teams from off-island, year-round. The project is in the planning and predevelopment phase to identify a suitable site and sustainable business model.
Anahola and West Kauai Affordable Rental Housing Project
Anahola and West Kauai Rental Housing Project – The Homestead Rental Housing Project begins with a pilot approach to design 4-plex configured structures with two 1-bedroom units on the first floor and two studio units on the second floor. This design concept provides flexibility to build 4-plexes based on infrastructure and land availability in our various rural Hawaiian Home Land communities.
Our goal is to create new inventory of affordable rental housing located on Hawaiian Home Lands, whether in rural homesteads on Kauai, Oahu, Maui Molokai, or Hawaii Island.
HCDC is piloting the approach with five 4-plexes in Anahola and two 4-plexes in Kekaha, for a total of 28 rental units on the Island of Kauai.The Homestead Rental Housing Project represents the Native Hawaiian community envisioning and implementing solutions to address the severe lack of affordable workforce housing in Hawaii.
Every 4-plex structure will be operated in partnership with local homestead associations, creating local jobs and capacity in property management.
