HCL was created by native Hawaiians on Maui who were unable to qualify for a Hawaiian Homelands lease. HCL started its work in 2002 in the Paukukalo homestead to help native Hawaiians obtain mortgages to receive their lease and get on the land.

We expanded from our Maui roots to serve native Hawaiians across the state. In 2007, HCL assisted Leiali‘i homestead families in Lahaina obtain mortgages. 16 years later, when the August 8th fires struck, our team moved quickly to launch the Kanaka Anti-Displacement Fund to bring services to the 104 impacted Leiali‘i families, committing ourselves to help them prevent displacement and rebuild.

After receiving information from the Interest Form for the Lahaina Homeowner Recovery Program, 159 of the total Lahaina owner-occupant homeowners affected by the fires have shown interest so far, and are now receiving assistance. This aid includes help with requesting mortgage forbearance, filing insurance claims, applying for FEMA/SBA loans, and/or submitting FEMA/SBA appeals.
