Big Island residents impacted by last year’s Kilauea eruption now have a new resource for recovery and housing referrals. Hawaii County has awarded a case management contract to Neighborhood Place of Puna.

The nonprofit will be reaching out to eruption survivors, listed on the survivor databases from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Hawaii Island Disaster Response & Recovery Team, to check on unmet needs and to offer services. A nearly $900,000 FEMA grant is paying for it.
