Lokahi Pacific is an independent, private non-profit housing and community development organization chartered under the laws of the State of Hawaii and incorporated in 1971.

Lokahi Pacific Mission

Our mission is to improve the quality of life, both economically and socially, of residents of the County of Maui and other rural Hawaii communities. With goal-oriented vision and broad collaboration, Lokahi Pacific develops sensible and successful projects that enrich the economic climate of the county, increase the inventory of affordable and special needs housing and insures that residents participate in that enrichment and share in its benefits.

Lokahi Pacific is guided by a volunteer board of directors and administered by an Executive Director and support staff. With decades of service to Maui County's communities, Lokahi Pacific has developed effective management systems and boasts a successful track record of administering public and private funds.

Community Development
Lokahi Pacific's community development experience falls into three basic areas:

1. Housing Development and Management

Beginning with the development of the Hale O Mana'o Lana Hou special needs rental housing project in 1980, Lokahi Pacific has developed and currently manages seven housing projects on Maui. As developer, owner and operator of these projects, Lokahi Pacific has demonstrated sufficient capacity to manage them in a manner that ensures the long-term viability of each project as affordable, long-term housing for Maui's eligible residents. Lokahi Pacific’s newest housing projects -- 62 Market Street rental apartments will bring the total number of housing rental units to 87.

In 1998 Lokahi Pacific participated in a USDA Rural Home Loan Partnership with USDA Rural Development, American Savings Bank, FHLB of Seattle and the County of Maui, that leveraged USDA Section 502 loan funds, private financing, and HUD HOME Investment Partnership Program funds, to provide affordable single-family home ownership for 76 low and moderate income Maui families.

2. Small Business Lending

3. Community Facilities Development
