OHA seeks budget input

HONOLULU — The Office of Hawaiian Affairs is seeking community input for its preliminary budget for fiscal years 2020 and 2021.

“OHA wants to hear from our community how they think OHA resources should be directed over the next two fiscal years to best meet the needs of our people,” said Kamana‘opono Crabbe, OHA’s chief executive officer and Ka Pouhana.

OHA’s biennium budget covers the periods from July 1 through June 30, 2020 and July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021.

OHA has created a webpage (www.oha.org/budget) that includes key information about OHA and its preliminary biennium budget, including the agency’s organizational structure, funding sources and the process for budget development. OHA beneficiaries and the general public are encouraged to share their mana‘o on OHA’s budget by emailing ohabudget@oha.org. The comment period will close June 5.
