Roundtable about Federal Eviction Moratorium Aug. 13 on AKAKU Channel 53
What help can Maui renters and landlords receive during the new federal eviction moratorium? A roundtable on Aug. 13 on AKAKU Channel 53 will provide answers.
It is a follow up to the July 22 panel discussion regarding landlord and tenant assistance that would be available when Hawaiʻi Governor David Ige’s state eviction moratorium expired Aug. 6, 2021.
This roundtable aims to clarify the complicated federal eviction moratorium and share what aid is available for Maui County residents, said Maui County Councilmember Yuki Lei Sugimura, who will help facilitate the roundtable.
Joining Councilmember Sugimura will be landlord and tenant attorneys, mediation administrators, and rent and utility assistance administrators. They include:
- Judge Joseph E. Cardoza (Ret.), Chair of the Hawaiʻi Access to Justice Commission.
- District Court Judge Kirstin Hamman
- Rep. Troy Hashimoto, State of Hawaiʻi
