OHA 'providing sincere need' for Hawaiians affected by recent natural disasters

Posted: Updated:

The Office of Hawaiian Affairs is joining the relief efforts for Hawaii's recent natural disasters.

The agency approved a package of emergency loans and $500,000 in aid for native Hawaiians impacted by the natural disasters on Hawaii Island and Kaua'i.

It also includes funds for one-time, financial assistance for qualified Kalo farmers on the Garden Isle, and to addresses health-related issues caused by the eruption on Hawaii Island. 

"For us, this is continuing our effort to support our community and providing the sincere need for people to help rebuild their lives back for their community, and to get up and running. Our aloha goes out to Kaua'i and Hawaii at this time. OHA will be in the long term assisting the need," said Kamana'o Crabble, OHA CEO.

Loans offered through the relief package can be used for home improvement, vehicle repair or replacement, or business stabilization.
