Oahu Rental and Utility Relief Program will cease accepting applications on Thursday, June 30 at 4:30 p.m.Posted on Jun 15, 2022 in Hot Topics
After helping more than 12,000 local families stay safely housed during the pandemic, the Rental and Utility Relief Program (RURP) will cease accepting applications on Thursday, June 30 at 4:30 p.m. New applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis and paid out based on the remaining funds available. While the application portal will close at the end of the month, Catholic Charities Hawaii and the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement will continue to process submitted applications and fund approved applications based on available funds.
RURP’s goal has been to help as many eligible households as possible to stay safely housed. To continue meeting this goal before closing to applications on June 30, the program is making two changes, effective immediately:
Eligible new applicants are the Program’s priority. New applicants are capped at past-due rent or utility bills and three months of future rent, as long as the total relief paid is 18 months or less. Applications must be submitted on this website at: oneoahu.org/renthelp by 4:30 p.m. on June 30.
Renters who have already received rent and utility relief payments can requalify for past-due rent/utility bills and up to three more months of support for rent. Renters currently in RURP have until 4:30 pm on June 30 to contact the organization managing their application to request additional support:
