1. Be prepared by having the names, dates of birth, and social security numbers available for all persons who will be listed on your
application. You will need to know the monthly gross income (before taxes) for each source of income for all persons listed on your
application. You must list all the sources of income individually.
2. Complete the application online at www.hpha.hawaii.gov or www.hphaishereforyou.org by clicking on “Apply Online Here”.

Applicants can only apply for one waiting list. No duplicate applications will be accepted. Any duplicate applications with same or similar
household members will have both applications denied. Prior to adding any households to the waiting list, the HPHA will conduct extensive

signifi cantly delay housing for other applicants.

the applicant will be placed on the applicable area waiting list unless rejected due to reasons listed above.
