• Maui Recovery + Rebuild Fund 

    Join us in supporting Maui with housing recovery and rebuild efforts following the island’s devastating wildfires.

    ‚ÄčThe Hawaii Building Industry Foundation, in partnership with BIA Hawaii, established the Maui Recovery + Rebuild Fund with the goal of providing targeted recovery and rebuild efforts for residents and communities impacted by the August 2023 Maui Wildfire. The fund will be tailored to Maui’s needs, focusing on offsetting the costs of programs that prioritize housing, rebuild and construction solutions, restoring infrastructure, and enhancing resilience against future adversities. The involvement of Maui-based industry professionals, associates, agencies, and other liaison organizations through the Maui Fund Advisory Committee will contribute significantly to the Fund's efficacy.
