Kauai prepares affordable senior housing in Lihue

LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) - Kauai County is preparing a new affordable housing development for senior citizens.

Rice Camp Senior Apartments has 60 units on two parcels behind the Lihue fire station. The complex has six single-story buildings and one two-story building.

Mayor Bernard Carvalho, Jr. says he's pleased affordable housing units near senior services will soon be available to Kauai's kupuna or elders.

One bedroom apartments will rent for $766 a month. Two-bedroom units will cost $921 a month. Utility costs are included.

Applicants must have annual income of no more than $38,160 for a single person and $43,620 for two people.

The apartments are scheduled to be finished in March. The project's management company, EAH Housing, is now accepting applications.
