We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization with a board of directors made up of people who live or work in Wahiawa. The Wahiawa Community Based Development Organization (CBDO) works within the Wahiawa Community NRSA (Neighborhood Revitalization Strategic Area). Our NRSA includes Wahiawa Town, Whitmore Village and parts of Schofield, and this designation gives us special consideration for federal grants to help low to moderate income residents in our area and to provide public service to the community in general.
The City and County of Honolulu has designated Wahiawa as a U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) NRSA (Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area) on Oahu. The area which the Wahiawa CBDO will work in includes all of Wahiawa west of Kamehameha Highway, extends south through Wilikina Drive to Waianae Ave, north to the Easternmost boundary of the Haleiwa CDP, east to parts of Uluwehi and Uuku Street, and west to State Highway 803.
Wahiawa Fresh! is our DBA name, and it’s just an easier way to recognize us in the community. After all, saying “Wahiawa Community Based Development Organization” is quite a mouthful! We’re working hard to bring exciting projects and improvements to Wahiawa and partnering with other groups. Look for our “W” logo around town.
