As DHHL reviews the 2009-2011 Native Hawaiian Development Plan (NHDP) which was adopted by the Hawaiian Homes Commission in 2009 we would like to invite you to participate in the development of the new 2011-2013 plan. The NHDP is important because it enables DHHL to provide services covering Individual Development, Community Development (Kulia I Ka Nuʻu), Beneficiary Consultation, Planning activities, and Governance for all beneficiaries served by the Hawaiian Home Lands Trust.

A complete set of information including the current plan is available on the DHHL website at dhhl.hawaii.gov. Please review the materials and we welcome your input and comments.
