 Loa`a Ka `Aina Ho`opulapula:

Applying for Hawaiian Home Lands

The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) announced the completion of Loa`a Ka `Aina Ho`opulapula: Applying for Hawaiian Home Lands, an informational booklet on DHHL's application process. The booklet and its companion video presentation were produced to assist all new and prospective applicants. “These resources have been designed to make an applicant's entry into the program as smooth as possible and will allow us to provide more effective service to our beneficiaries,” explained Hawaiian Homes Commission Chairman Kali Watson.

Booklets are available at DHHL's Applications Branch in Honolulu and neighbor island district offices, the Honolulu and neighbor island offices of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs and Alu Like, Inc., all state libraries and the state Department of Health in Honolulu.

The video will soon be available for viewing at all DHHL district offices and will also be in general circulation at selected state libraries.

In addition, the video program will be shown on these public access channels:

`Olelo (O`ahu), Na Leo `O Hawaii: channel 4 (East Hawaii) and channel 6 (West Hawaii), Ho`ike: channel 12 (Kaua`i), and (Maui's) Akaku: channel 50 (Lahaina only) and channel 13. (Please check your local listings as dates and times will vary.)

“The Hawaiian home lands program provides native Hawaiians with several benefits that we hope will assist them for generations to come. We encourage all qualified native Hawaiians to apply,” urged Watson.
