About the Event
Hawaiʻi County needs housing that our families and our workforce can afford. The 2019 Hawaiʻi Housing Planning Study showed that 8.8% of households pay between 30-40% of their monthly household income toward housing, 21.8% pay over 40% toward housing, and that Hawaiʻi County needs 13,303 additional housing units by 2025. The Center for Neighborhood Technology combines transportation and housing costs to provide a more accurate measure of affordability, showing that Hawaiʻi County leads the state in unaffordable housing costs: households pay 61% of their income toward housing and transportation (paying over 30% of income toward household costs = shelter burdened).
Resilience Hub Network
Our approach to resilience is based on (4) core principles: Coordinated, Decentralized, Community Led and ʻĀina Informed. Over the next year, Hubs will focus on developing skills to increase capacity to mitigate disaster impact and provide community-led response to social and natural disruptions. Registration for the 2023-2024 year closes September 30, 2023. Questions? Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
First Aid/CPR/AED Instructor Certification
We are opening this initial training course to up to 10 Hawaiʻi Island individuals. Our goal is to train at least (1) Instructor per district in this round. Selected applicants must commit to completing 4-6 hours of online coursework and attend a full day of instructor certification on September 26th at Hilo Medical Center. We will notify applicants no later than September 10th of the status of their application. Instructors will receive all equipment needed to conduct First Aid/CPR/AED certification workshops.
