Hawaii Island Community Development Corporation

The Hawaii Island Community Development Corporation (HICDC) is a non-profit housing developer that has coordinated the development of 412 low-income rental units, 174 subdivision lots, and 361 mutual self-help housing units on Hawaii Island.

The mission focus of HICDC is to facilitate the development of housing for low- and moderate-income households through direct development and self-help development coordination.  HICDC currently serves Hawaii Island.
