The purpose of revisiting the Kahikinui Community Based Economic Development & Makai Management Plan is to review the vision and principles to help clarify community building blocks to help guide sound decisions that have full beneficiary reach and serve both beneficiaries and waitlisters.
Original authors and principal faculty that produced the Kahikinui Community Based Economic Development & Makai Management Plan in the year 2000 will be contributing commentary and will be included on the agenda. A synopsis of presentations will continuously be presented to the Hawaiian Homes Commission (HCC) and the State of Hawaii Senate Hawaiian Affairs Committee.
The Senate Hawaiian Affairs Committee recently confirmed the new Department of Hawaiian Homelands (DHHL) Chair Kali Watson. There are over 28,000 beneficiaries on the DHHL waiting list. Act 279, provides $600 million dollars that is tasked to reduce the DHHL waiting list. The HHC reviews and approves proposals for project expenditures directed by this budget that was implemented in 2022. The $600 million was appropriated to address the needs of beneficiaries on the DHHL waitlist and those still waiting to get on their land. Homesteads across Hawai‘i are presenting their needs to the HHC for consideration.
The work of Farmers Voice Hawai‘i is committed to serving the needs of Kahikinui Homestead and improving the quality of life for Homesteaders. This work continues to contribute with securing county, state and federal grant funding that aligns with safe planning objectives and best practice methodologies.
