Honomu Subsistence Agricultural Homestead Community

Honomu Subsistence Agricultural Homestead Community

DHHL’s Administrative Rules were recently amended to include a Subsistence Agriculture Homestead Lease.  The Department assessed its entire land inventory to identify a tract of land that would be most conducive to implementing this new type of homestead lease.  Honomū was the area identified as having the attributes and characteristics that could best support successful subsistence agricultural activities. 

The Department has invited the first 500 people on the Hawai‘i Island agriculture wait list to participate in the process of developing a conceptual plan for the Honomū lands.  This webpage will post informational materials as they are made available to the invited Subsistence Agricultural Applicants:
