Aloha United Way (AUW) is actively working to protect the health, safety, and well-being of our communities as Hawai‘i confronts the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The following program has been launched as part of this ongoing effort.
HAWAIʻI UTILITY BILL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
The Hawai‘i Utility Bill Assistance Program will begin accepting applications at 8 a.m. on Feb. 8, 2021.
Residential customers who meet eligibility requirements can receive a one-time assistance of funds up to $750. That amount can be paid to one utility or split among several.
Hawaiian Electric is the founding sponsor of this statewide program to help qualifying families recover from the economic hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
