Benefited more than 115 Native Hawaiian households due to our early partnership with the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands.
8,500 FACE MASKS
Distributed to the community through seven local agencies and government partners.
2,500+ ADULTS & CHILDREN
Benefited from rent, childcare, and utility assistance, provided by the CARES Act, and distributed by AUW on behalf of the City and County of Honolulu.
Nearly $27 million in CARES Act funding distributed via AUW to Hawai‘i households that have been economically impacted by the pandemic
59% ALICE & IN POVERTY
The 2020 ALICE report, with projections from Hawai‘i Data Collaborative, estimated that the pandemic’s economic impact would increase the number of Hawai‘i families who are ALICE* or in poverty. Pre-COVID this number was 42%.
Increased capacity and updated platforms will allow improved community needs tracking and trend analysis with the Hawai’i Data Collaborative.
AUW’s 2021 grant cycle will address unique barriers and challenges faced by Hawai‘i’s ALICE* populations in the wake of the pandemic.
Strengthened relationships and continued alignment with community partners will ensure meaningful local impact for our island communities.
