Sample Testimony

I strongly SUPPORT HB209 which would provide the needed funds to support programs and operations that will directly benefit OHA’s beneficiaries. This bill includes proposals to match OHA trust funds with state general funds to support programs that provide education, housing, health, social, income, and legal services to Native Hawaiians. These funds will ultimately strengthen Hawaii families. I have personally been a recipient of programs and services either directly or indirectly administered by non-profits that were funded by OHA. I know firsthand how valuable these services are to my family and my community. For these reasons, I urge you to PASS this measure.
