“We, like the rest of our community, have adapted to the changes caused by the ongoing pandemic,” said HHC Chairman William J. Ailā, Jr. “While the Commission looks forward to meeting with beneficiaries in person and visiting those on the neighbor islands, the current COVID-19 environment doesn’t allow for that. If and when COVID-19 allows us to convert to in-person meetings with enough advance notice, we will use the flexibility to decide to resume meeting in person. For the time being, we have been live-streaming the HHC meetings for several months and invite our beneficiaries to continue to join us online during the 2021 calendar year as we progress forward in our crucial mission.”
Prior to the pandemic, HHC met at least once annually on Hawaiʻi Island, Maui, Molokaʻi, Lānaʻi, and Kauaʻi. If there are changes in COVID-19 restrictions, the Commission may update its meeting schedule.
HHC Community Meetings are currently halted. Beneficiaries are invited to subscribe to DHHL’s digital monthly newsletter Ka Nūhou Uila and follow the Department on its social media channels for the most up to date information. To sign-up for monthly e-mails, visit dhhl.hawaii.gov/ka-nuhou-uila.
