WAIMĀNALO, OʻAHU – Waimānalo welcomed over 30 new Hawaiian homesteaders into its community this past weekend at the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands’ Kakaʻina Lot Selection Ceremony in Waimānalo.

Governor David Ige and Hawaiian Homes Commission Chair Jobie Masagatani congratulated 31 Hawaiian homes beneficiaries who showed up at Blanche Pope Elementary School to select from the 45 available lots in the DHHLʻs newest homestead community of Kakaʻina.

The Kakaʻina subdivision is located on seven acres of Hawaiian home lands approximately a half-mile mauka of the Waimānalo Shopping Center. Future Kakaʻina homeowners were awarded an undivided interest lease for a 5,000-square-foot residential lot in this subdivision in 2006.

At the lot selection ceremony, beneficiaries were offered the choice of a turnkey home or a vacant lot for owner builder options. A self-help home option will also be available for income-qualified families.

Kakaʻina is the first in a series of homestead lot selection ceremonies to be held over the next two years, with lots on Lānaʻi, Kauaʻi, and Maui also in the pipeline.

The Department is encouraging all Hawaiian Homes beneficiaries to update their contact information to receive the latest homestead lot offers from DHHL.
