Realtor's Association of Maui
In collaboration with Hawai‘i’s REALTOR® Associations and Hawaii Information Service, the Realtor's Association of Maui launched MauiKokua.com, a new website to offer housing resources and connect those who have housing with those who need it. They’re also forming a series of committees to help with the phased recovery of our communities.
Airbnb.org will be working with organizations on the ground (like https://www.meoinc.org/) to do the intake from survivors and verify their need
Once verified, Airbnb.org handle the booking in person w/ the survivors to get them booked into a home.
The benefit of working for Airbnb.org for those who want to host is Airbnb.org will handle the booking process (they will receive booking requests via email/Airbnb platform). Airbnb will provide insurance during the stay through its Aircover program ($1M in liabilty coverage; $3M in property coverage)
AirBNB has housed over 250,000 people to date through Airbnb.org, including 100,000+ from those fleeing Ukraine.
Residents of Maui County who have been affected by this tragedy should register for FEMA assistance. Survivors with internet or telephone access can register for assistance by visiting www.DisasterAssistance.gov, calling 1-800-621- 3362 or by using the FEMA App (FEMA.gov/app).
If you use a relay service, such as video relay (VRS), captioned telephone or other service, give FEMA the number for that service.
