Second Supplementary Proclamation Issued for Homelessness

Gov. David Ige issued a second supplementary emergency proclamation that extends the disaster emergency relief period for homelessness across the state.

The purpose of the emergency proclamation is to accelerate the completion of housing projects for individuals and families who are transitioning out of homelessness. It also expands shelter capacity and access to services.

The governor signed the initial emergency proclamation for homelessness on Dec. 14, 2018 and a supplementary proclamation on Feb. 12, 2019.

This second supplementary emergency proclamation for homelessness continues until June 11, 2019.


Kaua‘i Flooding Emergency Declaration Extended


Gov. Ige also issued a seventh supplementary emergency proclamation, extending the disaster emergency relief period for the Kaua‘i floods that occurred in April 2018.

This emergency proclamation, which applies to Kaua‘i only, extends the authority to spend state funds as appropriated to protect the health, safety and welfare of Kaua‘i residents. It also supports the state’s effort to provide efficient relief of suffering, damage, and losses caused by the flooding.

The current, seventh supplementary emergency proclamation for the Kaua‘i floods continues until June 12, 2019.
