PUBLIC NOTICE: DRAFT 2019 Native Hawaiian Housing Plan

Each year, as part of its compliance with 24 CFR Part 1006, Title VIII of the Native American Housing Assistance and Self Determination Act (NAHASDA), the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) must file an approved annual housing plan (AHP) with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  As part of that process, the department releases the draft housing plan for public comment and review. The proposed draft will come to the Commission in April 2019 for final acceptance before being submitted to HUD for approval.

Notable changes to the AHP:

  • Significant reduction in CIP activities due to substantial completion of lot development in Kakaina; Waiohuli; and Lai Opua;
  • Remaining balances are encumbered in existing contracts and projected homeowner financing; and,
  • Any new proposed allocation is at $2 million, drastically lower than in prior years.

Public Comments will be received until April 20, 2019 and directed to:

Niniau Simmons, NAHASDA Manager
