*Due to the delay in notification for the first meeting scheduled for E. Hawaii, a second meeting was scheduled to give the East Hawai’i community an additional opportunity to provide their input for the 2012 Native Hawaiian Housing Plan.

Your input in the development of our plan is very important to us.  Attached for your review are the meeting agenda and an overview of NAHASDA.  You can assist us by taking a look at the overview and share your thoughts and recommendations at the meeting.

If you are unable to attend, you may use the overview to write down your recommendations and email to Kamanaʻo Mills at:  kamanao.mills@hawaii.gov or mail to: Kamanaʻo Mills, Department of Hawaiian Home Lands, P.O. Box 1879, Honolulu, Hawaii 96805.  The deadline for submitting your recommendations is Monday, April 30, 2012.

We look forward to a lively discussion as we begin the process to map out our housing activities for the next five years.  Thank you for your participation and commitment to the Hawaiian Home Lands Trust and to the future of our Beneficiaries.

Aloha and mahalo,
