WASHINGTON – From July 2nd through July 3rd, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Marcia L. Fudge will visit O?ahu, Hawaii to tour investments in affordable housing and to discuss housing and urban issues with local officials. The Secretary will be joined on some engagements by Senator Brian Schatz, Senator Mazie Hirono, Governor Green and other elected officials.
 
Secretary Fudge will tour two affordable housing complexes, meet with tenants, hold discussions with Native Hawaiian community leaders, and host a roundtable conversation with elected officials about how the Biden-Harris administration is working to create more housing and address homelessness.
 
“I look forward to learning from both local government officials, HUD grantees, and residents about the unique housing needs across Hawaii and how federal housing investments are helping Hawaiians,” said HUD Secretary Marcia L. Fudge. “Every community has unique needs and that's why HUD works with local partners to deploy its resources to improve lives.”
 
Additional details:
  • Sunday, July 2: On July 2nd, Secretary Fudge and local officials will tour Hale Kewalo, an affordable rental housing building in Honolulu, and speak with tenants there. The Secretary, Senator Brian Schatz and Representative Jill Tokuda will also tour the Gregory House Apartments, a facility which focuses on providing affordable housing and supportive services to persons living with HIV.
  • Monday, July 3: On July 3, Secretary Fudge will participate in two roundtable conversations.  First, Secretary Fudge and Senator Mazie Hirono will meet with Native Hawaiian local leaders to talk about the Native Hawaiian Housing Block Grant (NHHBG) program.
