DHHL News Release: Hawaiian Homes Commission Releases 2022 Meeting Schedule

Posted on Dec 7, 2021 in Latest Department News, Newsroom

(Kapolei, Oʻahu) – The Hawaiian Homes Commission (HHC), the nine-person executive board that governs the Department of Hawaiian Homes Lands (DHHL), has approved and announced its 2022 meeting calendar.

The meetings will be held in compliance with Act 220 and comply with any existing COVID-19 guidelines at the time of the meeting.

Passed by the 2021 legislature and signed into law by Governor David Ige on July 6, 2021, Act 220 provides state agencies the flexibility to utilize interactive conference technology for the public to view meetings online as well as provide remote oral testimony so board members and other participants can hear the testimony whether through the internet, a telephone, or other means.

“While the Commission looks forward to getting back out to neighbor islands to meet with beneficiaries in person, having the flexibility to add this level of technology is a real service to our community,” said HHC Chairman William J. Ailā, Jr. “Beneficiaries can see our meeting live online or watch them at their convenience and should they need to testify, they can do so conveniently from their phone or computer.”

HHC Meetings are generally held on the third Monday and Tuesday of each month, except for January and February when the meetings are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday due to a Monday holiday.
