# [#]Aloha Friend,

Over the past week, FEMA search and rescue teams and our first responders have worked tirelessly to complete the search of the debris in Lahaina.

FEMA, the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, and the American Red Cross have also finished moving all survivors still in temporary shelters to long-term housing.

To support the victims of the Maui fire, please give to the Hawaii Community Foundation’s Maui Strong Fund, which will ensure that your donation goes to those in need. [[link removed]]

Since August 16, the American Red Cross, the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, and FEMA have relocated over 6,000 survivors of the Maui fires from congregate shelters to contracted hotels.

On Tuesday of last week, the final American Red Cross temporary shelter at South Maui Community Park Gymnasium in Kihei was closed, and survivors were relocated to long term housing.

In total, 19 hotels and hundreds of short-term rental properties including Airbnb rentals are currently housing the displaced.

These accommodations will continue to provide meals, casework services, financial recovery resources, and other disaster relief assistance.

On Tuesday of this week, we announced that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, with the support and assistance of local cultural experts and Maui-based businesses, will lead efforts to remove fire-damaged debris from areas across Maui.

Once the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has removed household hazardous materials from the affected areas, the removal of remaining debris from affected areas will begin.

I am incredibly proud of the entire West Maui community as they continue to show aloha and support to survivors from Lahaina.

I am also grateful to our state and federal partners, including FEMA, who have worked so hard this month to deliver aid to survivors, and to President Biden who has been personally engaged in making sure we have every resource possible to assist the Maui community.

Thank you again for supporting the victims of this tragedy as they mourn, grieve, and begin to recover.

I will continue to keep you updated on our aid and relief efforts on Maui as we move forward as one ohana.


Governor Josh Green
