Our newest property, Koʻoloaʻula has been designed to accommodate larger, multi-generational families, meeting a pressing need for many households on Oʻahu. This complex of three-story townhouses opened its doors in April 2013. Phase II and its 188 apartments are now under construction with its first apartments coming available in April 2016. Ko’oloa’ula is comprised of one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom units along with space for community gatherings. With the first phase of the project fully completed, Mutual Housing is now coordinating with partner organizations to establish services and activities at Koʻoloaʻula comparable to those available at our other properties.

The waitlist for Ko`oloa`ula – Phases I and II is closed and we are not accepting applications at this time. We expect to open our waitlist in mid February 2016. Please continue to monitor this web page for notification when we will open our application process.
When apartments are vacated and become available in the future, we will continue to call applicants off of the waitlist. Every applicant will go through a screening process for income qualifications and background checks. Therefore, there is no guarantee that an applicant will get an apartment. It can sometimes require screening many applications before a qualified applicant is found. The qualified and approved applicant holding the lowest lottery number shall receive the first available unit for their family size. The next lowest lottery number that is qualified will then get the next available apartment.
Helpful information for applicants on the waitlist:
- Applicants that change contact phone numbers or addresses must be sure to send in writing the applicant name and new contact information. If the applicant cannot be reached by phone or mail, the applicant will be removed from the waitlist. Send address changes to: Koʻoloaʻula, 91-1159 Keahumoa Parkway, #801, Honolulu, HI 96706.
- Applicants will be contacted in the order they are on the waitlist. It is critical that applicants return calls and continue to provide requested information within the stated deadlines. Once an applicant is called, they are in a race with others who are also called, since multiple applications must be processed at the same time for a single unit. Applicants that delay in the screening process will be bypassed by other applicants who turn in their information quickly. Unfortunately, applicants that do not respond by the deadlines will lose their opportunity for an apartment and be sent a rejection letter.
- The first month’s rent and security deposit (which is equal to the monthly rent) will be required before move in. The apartment cannot be held vacant for applicants who are trying to gather the funds when they are approved for a unit, so it is very important that applicants collect the necessary funds as soon as possible after they are called for screening if not sooner. Qualified applicants who do not have sufficient funds at move in will lose their opportunity for an apartment and cannot remain on the waitlist.
- Applicants who must give 28-days notice to their current landlords often end up with overlapping rent payments, since units cannot be held open for that long. The first qualified applicant that can move in will bypass someone with a lower waitlist number.
Good luck to all applicants!
