You may deposit more than the $750.00 within the year, but BUILD will only match up to $750.00
You must save for a minimum of six (6) months
You must be a full time resident on OAHU island
Match saving funds from BUILD will not be available until the end of the one-year program or until the $750.00 match has been met.

Next Steps :
Opening a Bank Account
Once the above documents are reviewed, we will open your account at Bank of Hawaii. Since this is a special account with no fees, we need to go in person together to open it at either the Kahala or Ala Moana location.
Check In / Financial Education
Once your account is established, there will be a check in every 4 to 6 weeks either in person or via video conference to:
1. See how you are doing with your savings goals.
2. Discuss challenges we might be able to assist with such as housing, SNAP benefits, job placement, etc.
