OHA: Office of Hawaiian Affairs

Provide Resources

Among the key ways OHA fulfills its purpose is by providing resources towards improving conditions for Native Hawaiians. For example, each year OHA awards $500,000 in scholarship money. Similarly, nearly 2,000 Native Hawaiians have borrowed more than $34 million from OHA within the past decade to start businesses, improve homes, consolidate debts and continue their education. In addition, OHA awards more than $9 million in grants annually to community-based organizations that support the focus of the strategic plan. And as the state’s 13th largest landowner, OHA manages more than 27,000 acres of lands set aside largely for cultural and agricultural endeavors.
