Mayor Harry Kim ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF County of Hawaii’s FREE FINANCIAL NAVIGATOR SERVICE TO HELP RESIDENTS TACKLE COVID-19 FINANCIAL CHALLENGES
In partnership with national nonprofit organization the Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund (CFE Fund), the County of Hawaii announced today the launch of a free Financial Navigators program to help residents navigate critical financial issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Financial Navigators will be available remotely starting July 13, 2020 to provide guidance over the phone to help residents access available programs and services to manage income disruptions and other financial concerns. Financial Navigators help residents one-on-one to triage personal financial issues, identify immediate action steps to manage expenses and maximize income, and make referrals to other services. The County of Hawaii will offer these Financial Navigator services in partnership with Hawaii First Federal Credit Union and its non-profit arm.
