Applications are currently being accepted for the second phase of Kahului Lani, an affordable senior rental complex developed by Catholic Charities Housing Development Corporation in Central Maui. Kahului Lani provides seniors, ages 55 and over, who earn 60% or less of the county median income with an affordable permanent living option, offering complimentary amenities so residents can “age in place.”  

The second phase of the Kahului Lani rental housing complex consists of 83 one-bedroom/one-bathroom air-conditioned units, located at 67 School Street in Kahului. The housing facility is being developed in partnership with GSF LLC and Hale Mahaolu is the property manager.

“With the second phase of Kahului Lani near completion, Catholic Charities Housing Development Corporation is proud to play a role in assisting Maui County fill the need for affordable senior housing on Maui,” said Catholic Charities Hawai‘i CEO and president Rob Van Tassell. The first phase of Kahului Lani consisted of 81 rental units, which opened to tenants in 2020.

Only original applications completed and received by the Hale Mahaolu central office no later than 4 p.m. on Aug. 31, 2021 will be reviewed for eligibility and entered into a lottery to determine initial occupancy and wait list. Faxed applications will not be accepted. Qualified housing applications received after Aug. 31, 2021 will be added to the initial wait list in the order in which they were received.
