107 Affordable Homes For Kaua`i
Of all the work we could be doing, this project creates the most affordable homes for Kaua`i families in the least amount of time.
Eleele Iluna Subdivision
Kauai Habitat’s first executive director, LaFrance Kapaka-Arboleda had the foresight to rally the community to address not only our needs in the aftermath of Hurricane ‘Iniki, but also the long-term needs of the community. She began a process by which Kaua‘i Habitat for Humanity acquired and purchased 24 acres of land in ‘Ele‘ele from McBryde Sugar Company. Purchase of the land was completed in 2007 along with a large donation from an anonymous donor. The land is owned free and clear by Kaua‘i Habitat for Humanity.
Development and build out of Phase I, which included 18 homes, was completed in 2009.
Work on Phase II, Increment A, which includes 48 lots, began in 2014. The last group of 20 homes are currently under construction. Construction of homes in this increment will be complete by the end of 2018.
Development of Phase II, Increment B, which includes 59 lots, began in 2016. Construction of homes in this increment will begin by late 2018. Family Services staff is currently processing qualified homebuyers for the first group of homes. Another housing offering will occur by early 2019 to begin homebuyer selection for the next group of homes.
