The Hawai’i Island Veterans Memorial, Inc. (HIVM) is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) all-volunteer non-profit corporation privately organized in 1997 to serve as a development entity for the island’s many veterans and veterans groups.
HIVM is pleased to announce that EAH Housing has received financing awards from the Hawaii Housing Finance and Development Corporation (HHFDC) and other sources for the $58 million senior independent living community along West Kawili and Kapiolani Streets in Hilo. Construction began on this affordable 92-unit project on February 17, 2023. Horizontal work on this 5+ acre site is nearing completion, and vertical work was started in late May. For in-depth information on qualifications for tenancy in the completed project go to https://www.eahhousing.org/hilo/.
Our intent now is to develop a community medical clinic in partnership with an established Hawai’i-based medical services provider. This would provide work and office space for island and off-island doctors and specialists who can serve military veterans and the overall island community as well.
We’ll also be establishing an endowment fund at the Hawai’i Community Foundation. These endowment funds will be used to provide scholarships to deserving on-island public high school graduates.
