DHHL Administrative Rules – Supplemental Dwelling Units

The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands is proposing the compilation and amendment of HAR Chapter 10-3 Native Hawaiian Rehabilitation Program, including:

  • Provisions for the approval and use of Supplemental Dwelling Units (SDU) on residential lots on Hawaiian Home Lands.

Public Hearing

Proposed Action or Issue for Discussion The proposed amendment would add a new subchapter 3.1 relating to supplemental dwelling units (SDU). Proposed subchapter 3.1 creates a five-year pilot program for residential lessees on Hawaiian home lands to construct a supplemental dwelling unit, also called “ohana unit” or “accessory dwelling unit” by the various counties. An SDU application process, general lot requirements, and lessee obligations are outlined in the proposal. Terms for use of the SDU are also detailed.
