“This is a fine moment,” said U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono, who grew up on a rice farm in Japan and helped build federal support for the $40 million Kunia project. “When I look at this housing, it brings back to me the struggles of people who just want to be able to work hard, support their families and live in housing that is affordable to them — and we all came together to make that happen.”
