OHA: Office of Hawaiian Affairs

Laulima

In difficult times, we laulima – or work together – to help each other. 

Our communities are coming together to support families affected by the flooding in Kauaʻi and lava flows in Puna. And the Office of Hawaiian Affairs is joining the efforts to assist our beneficiaries.

Aloha ke kahi i ke kahi. 

Malama ke kahi i ke kahi. 

That’s Hawai’i. That’s who we are.

Kōkua for Kauaʻi

Hawaiians represent 30 percent of the population in remote Wainiha and Hāʻena, which were badly affected by torrential downpours and have been nearly isolated by highway damage, rockfall and mudslides. A delegation representing OHA’s administration and Trustee Dan Ahuna’s office met with flood-impacted residents, nonprofit leaders and county officials to listen to their concerns and assess the extensive damage in communities along Kauaʻi’s northern coast.

OHA is committed to supporting beneficiaries recovering from flood damage on Kauaʻi, as well as those coping with an ongoing eruption at Kīlauea volcano on Hawaiʻi Island.

Kōkua for Puna

The Office of Hawaiian Affairs is committed to supporting our beneficiaries coping with the ongoing eruption at Kīlauea volcano on Hawaiʻi Island.

Native Hawaiians who have been affected by the recent lava flows are encouraged to apply for emergency aid from the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, which has set aside financial assistance for individual households in Puna.  OHA is collaborating with the Neighborhood Place of Puna to distribute the funds to qualified Native Hawaiian households in Puna.
