OHA fulfills its purpose by providing such resources as the business assistance offered by its subsidiaries, which are critical to the organization’s efforts to create an environment where Hawaiian-owned businesses have an opportunity to thrive.
Hi‘ilei Aloha LLC is a non-profit subsidiary of OHA. It is focused largely on promoting, developing, and supporting culturally-appropriate opportunities that benefit Native Hawaiians. OHA created the subsidiary in October 2007 to manage two properties it acquired: Waimea Valley and Makaweli Poi Mill. Since then, Hi‘ilei Aloha’s role as a subsidiary has been broadened to include securing federal funds and other grants for programs that benefit the Hawaiian community. In addition, it assists Hawaiian non-profit organizations and businesses by helping them build capacity.
