our purpose

The purpose of the Kahiau Community Assistance Program (KCAP) is to provide one-time emergency financial assistance (up to $1500) to Native Hawaiian beneficiaries facing hardship due to an unexpected crisis. KCAP is made possible through a grant from the Office of Hawaiian Affairs and aims to provide stability for Native Hawaiians during emergency situations.

what we fund

The Kahiau Program currently funds:

  • mortgage payment

  • rent deposit

The Kahiau program has reached its current processing capacity.

We are waiting on the Office of Hawaiian Affairs to allocate additional funding.
