Live on Maui and need support to achieve an affordable rental or home of your own?

Hawaiian Community Assets’ Maui Financial Opportunity Center (FOC) can help. Operated by Hawaiian Community Assets, the FOC’s free programs and services can help you build solid credit, increase your savings, and access grants and loans for a down payment on a new home or to make that first month rent payment.

Here’s how the FOC can help:


Free Homebuyer Education workshops cover everything you need to know to be home-purchase-ready. Some workforce housing projects like Hale Kaiola and Kihei Wailani Village require buyers to complete a homebuyer education workshop facilitated by a HUD-certified agency like the FOC.


Connect you to a team that will help you prepare for buying a home. They can help you access two free credit reports per year, free credit building products, and a free evaluation of home lending products based on your credit score.


Down payment assistance programs for first-time homebuyers. The County of Maui and the FOC can help you find financing for as little as 0% down.


Get a financial checkup to help you optimize your budget, consolidate debt, obtain a line of credit and get access to many more financial tools to help you save towards your first home purchase.
