The Kaua‘i County Housing Agency

Mission Statement: To provide greater opportunities for Kauaʻi's citizens to choose and secure affordable, safe, decent and sanitary housing and to live and work in neighborhoods and communities that can accommodate the needs and desires of all households and individuals.




The Kaua‘i County Housing Agency Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program announces it will be accepting applications online for its Section 8 HCV Waiting List beginning at 12:00PM HST on August 1, 2016 until 4:30PM HST on August 12, 2016. Applications can be submitted online at

Status information regarding placement on the list will be available after the closing date and after all applications have been received. Paper applications can be obtained from the Agency for those who have no computer or internet, however it is highly recommended that you use the online system in order to obtain a receipt for the completion of your application.  Completed applications must be submitted or postmarked during the open period. Late applications will not be accepted.  The Agency will not be responsible for lost mail or incomplete applications.    Incomplete applications will not be processed.  Applicants must apply during the period the list is open for applications.  Again, the Agency strongly recommends families apply via the online application.  Applying for the waiting list online or via paper is free of charge.  Applicants should be cautioned against individuals or companies offering application assistance for a fee.  These individuals or companies are not sanctioned or a part of the HCV Program and should be considered a scam or fraudulent.


Due to limited funding availability, applications will be selected and ordered using a random lottery system. Not all applicants will be placed on the Waiting List. By randomly selecting the applications received for placement on the waiting lists, the process is fair and equitable. The time and date of receipt of the application online or on paper has no bearing on whether an application will be selected for the waiting list. There is no need or advantage to applying immediately after the list opens, in fact, those who do may experience slower response times or limited availability from the online system.

Applicants who live and work within Kaua‘i County will receive a preference on the list and are therefore encouraged to apply.


The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program is the federal government's primary program that allows very low-income families to choose and lease or purchase safe, decent, and affordable privately-owned rental housing.


Additional information and updates regarding the list opening are available online at or calling the Kaua‘i County Housing Agency at 808-241-4440.
