Hawaii’s Eviction Moratorium Extended 60 Days

HONOLULU — Hawaii’s governor is extending for two more months an eviction moratorium that he implemented during the coronavirus pandemic, but says he doesn’t expect to keep it longer than that.

The existing emergency order instituting a pause on evictions was due to expire Tuesday, but Gov. David Ige extended it 60 days to Aug. 6.

During an interview on the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s Spotlight Hawaii livestream program, the governor noted the legislature has passed a bill encouraging landlords and tenants to work out payments for past rent to prevent evictions. He didn’t say whether he will sign the measure but says he thinks it is “important.”

He also notes that rent and mortgage relief is available.
