Kaniko`o Phase I & II (Rice Camp Senior Housing) is a senior community in Lihue that provides affordable rental housing for households with incomes not greater than 60% of the Area Median Income Limit ($36,300 annual income for one person, $41,460 for two).

Phase I, built in 2015, has 60 one and two bedroom apartments that are contained in 6 single-story buildings with 6 units each, and a two-story building that has 24 units. Walkways throughout the property lead to raised garden beds for kupuna that like to garden. The property is situated so as to take advantage of the prevailing tradewinds.

Phase II inaugurated late 2017 with 30 one and two bedroom low income units. This exciting expansion has a wonderful court yard with two raised garden boxes  and outdoor tables for residents’ use and pleasure.  Bldg 8 is located across the street from the Community Center making it very convenient for community activities.

Kaniko`o was developed in partnership with the County of Kauai, Vitus Group, HHFDC and EAH Housing.

All applicants and household members must be age 62 years and older to qualify for a unit. Rent includes water, sewer, trash service, and electricity.

Kaniko`o (Rice Camp) is LEED® Platinum certified.
