LIHU‘E — The state’s moratorium on evictions is valid through the end of the month, but any missed payments during this pandemic are still owed to landlords.

The state, through a new program announced Tuesday, will assist both renters and owners in paying for their housing.

The Rent Relief and Housing Assistance Program uses $100 million in federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act money to provide assistance to unemployed renters or those who have had a reduction in work hours due to the pandemic.
