OK, Now I'd like to ask your opinion about the way awards are granted

right now. Do you think DHHL should concentrate only on land awards

for applicants, or do you think they should be involved in creating

other kinds of housing opportunities for Hawaiians?

Do you think DHHL should use some Home Lands to generate money for
infrastructure and loans — or do you think they should use all the

REFUSED 4

Right now, homestead awards are mostly single fctmily houses. Do you

Awards can be made faster if Homesteaders don't have to comply with
county building codes. It might be harder to get mortgages or

the same codes as other homes?
