(KITV) Unexpected Delay in Honolulu’s “City Card” Program


The $500 cards are valid from 12/7-12/27 but were not sent out last week due to an “unexpected delay,” according to the City’s Office of Economic Revitalization. 

Patrick Williams, of the Office of Economic Revitalization told KITV4 the unexpected delay has been “resolved,” but did not go into more detail. He told KITV4 the cards should be hitting mailboxes this week.

Earlier this month, Mayor Kirk Caldwell announced the cards to help Oahu residents who have received “Direct hardship relief.” 

3,500 residents will be receiving the cards, fewer than the expected 4,000-6,000.

“The team is trying to get additional cards mailed,” added Williams. 

The cards are valid at Oahu’s grocery and convenience stores.
