The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands offered 16 vacant lots to its Lānaʻi waitlist beneficiaries on Saturday, July 27.
The home was built through a partnership between the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands and Honolulu Habitat for Humanity and was funded through a zero-interest loan made possible by the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act, administered by DHHL.
The 37 turn-key homes will be built in partnership with Gentry Kapolei Development, LLC and are the same models and quality as area fee simple homes built by the developers. The turn-key lots will be presented at a lot selection meeting for pre-qualified beneficiaries in September.
Every year, the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands prepares and submits legislative proposals for inclusion in the Governor’s Administrative Package for the next session of the Hawaii State Legislature. For the 2020 package, the department is soliciting recommendations from beneficiaries and the general public for consideration in our legislative package.
On Tuesday, July 9, the Hawaiian Homes Commission approved the issuance of a Right-of-Entry permit and gave conditional approval for a General Lease to be issued to Innergex Renewables USA, LLC for up to 147 acres across two parcels in Kalaeloa, Oʻahu.
