News Release from DHHL, Oct 26, 2015

The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) is kicking off a series of statewide meetings seeking beneficiary input on proposed rule changes related to the following topics:

  • Genetic Testing: Proposes DHHL accept DNA tests to establish family ties in order to qualify for the Hawaiian Home Lands program.
  • Lease Transfer: Proposes a process and requirements for transferring a vacant homestead lot (i.e. a lot with no home or other improvements built upon the land).
  • Subsistence Lots: Proposes a new option in DHHLʻs agricultural program that supports a subsistence rural lifestyle.

The DHHL is currently re-examining the Administrative Rules governing department operations, and proposing to remove, add, or modify these rules to meet the changing needs and priorities of our beneficiaries. The department plans to propose several rule changes throughout the course of this administration. This first round of proposed rule changes are in direct response to beneficiary feedback the department received over the years.

The rulemaking process could take up to two years to complete, and begins with Beneficiary Consultation meetings at the following locations and dates. All meetings scheduled to run from 6:00 – 8:30 p.m.
