Maui County and the Maui Chamber of Commerce will host a two-day Maui Nui Attainable Housing Forum, Oct. 15 and 16 at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.
“This conference provides two substantive ways to help get our community on track with attainable housing opportunities, both for rentals and first-time homebuyers,” said Maui Mayor Michael Victorino. “The first is to help our residents prepare for attainable housing, and the second is to get more attainable housing in the construction pipeline.”
The first day of the conference is free for all attendees and will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. Oct. 15.
Attendees will learn more about Maui County’s housing crisis, receive information on how to prepare for housing opportunities, get education on first-time homebuying and participate in an open house to view displays of upcoming projects.
The second day will cost $60 for attendees and include a continental breakfast and lunch and will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Oct. 16. Attendees will focus on getting attainable housing and rental units built.
“The second day will focus on panel discussions on roadblocks to building housing, and there will be multiple opportunities for participants to engage with working groups to determine solutions and needed actions,” Mayor Victorino said.
