DHHL Hosts Orientation Meeting for Waimānalo Lots

The Department of Hawaiian Homelands (DHHL) hosted an orientation meeting on Saturday, June 22 for waitlist applicants interested in vacant lots within the Kakaina Subdivision in Waimānalo. The offering of the 15 subdivision lots will take place in August.

The vacant lots have infrastructure in place including electricity, telecom, sewage, and water availability, and are build-ready.

Hawaiian Homes Commission Chairman William J. Aila, Jr. opened the meeting noting the efforts and vision of the department, highlighting the role of reciprocity that homesteaders have.

“The vision is once you have a place of sanctuary, a hale, use the privilege to rehabilitate.
Use the infrastructure cost put in place by the Department to send your keiki to school, start a business, malama the community – that is the vision,” Aila said. He also reiterated the commitment DHHL has in advocating for beneficiaries to ensure fund availability to continue infrastructure build-out in support of the placement of native Hawaiians on the land.

New lessees will have the opportunity to build a home that fits the needs of their family, a prominent distinction of DHHL’s offering of vacant lots. Service providers HPM
Building Supply, Hardware Hawai`i, Honsador, HomeStreet Bank, and Honolulu Habitat provided beneficiaries with information on-site.

The Kakaina Subdivision offering of 15 lots are among 395 awards planned for 2019. DHHL has over 1,300 lots in its production pipeline that are anticipated to be completed over the next five years.
