The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands is conducting a statewide series of beneficiary consultation meetings

The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands is conducting a statewide series of beneficiary consultation meetings on proposed amendments to its Administrative Rules.  This is a continuation of meetings and discussions between DHHL and our beneficiary leaders that started
in 2005 and has been ongoing since then.   In general, these Administrative Rules describe the department’s organization and procedures, and implements laws and policies.

The current set of proposed changes relate only to rules in these sections:

Chapter 10-1 General Provisions
Chapter 10-2 Organization and Management
Chapter 10-5.1 Rules of Practice and Procedure
Chapter 10-7 Native Hawaiian Housing Block Grant Program (NEW)

(Amendments to other sections of the Administrative Rules will be covered in future consultation meetings)

These meetings are designed to inform our beneficiaries of these proposed changes and to explain the public hearing process. The formal
public hearing is scheduled for the first week of September. The proposed amendments and details about the location of the hearings
and how you can submit comments are posted on our website (www.hawaii.gov/dhhl). We encourage you to attend the meeting nearest to you. Please call (808) 620-9486 with any questions.
