The Office of Housing (HOU) drives policy and strategy for housing islandwide. The office leads cross-sector collaboration and policy change to stimulate the acquisition, development, and preservation of housing for all of Oahu’s residents, including the creation of pathways from homelessness to housing. 

The significance of the City’s role and responsibility to create viable solutions to ease Oahu’s Housing crisis cannot be overstated. We have embraced this challenge with full resolve because there is no more fundamental need or matter of greater importance.


Our mission is to drive unprecedented investments in three pillars of housing: the acquisition of affordable housing units, the creation of new housing units through policies that incentivize development, and the preservation of existing affordable housing units to promote community stability.


We envision an Oahu where all residents, in each of our communities, have access to safe, stable, and affordable housing, regardless of income level, so today’s generation and future generations can continue to call our island home.

Communities across Oʻahu only truly thrive when housing opportunities are a reality for every resident — and given our island’s housing crisis, the City and County of Honolulu’s role in the development of housing has never been more critically important.
