Community Projects


    In an effort to determine their own destiny, obtain self-governance, and independence from the state's oversight, and after many years of intensive community-based planning, the Nanakuli Hawaiian Homestead Community Association (NHHCA) with the help of Hawaiian Community Development Board (HCDB) has developed a major “village center” project that includes a multipurpose learning center, a 48-unit affordable rental housing complex, a Waianae Comp satellite health clinic with an affordable drug pharmacy, a large renal clinic and a commercial center with Longs and other national retailers as anchor tenants.

As of August 2019, HCDB has started cooperatively working with the Papakolea Community Development Corp. (“PCDC”) to develop the 14.533 acres of DHHL land on the slopes of Punchbowl. Their collective efforts are designed to address two project priorities identified by the homesteading communities of Papakōlea, Kalāwahine and Kewalo and included in the 2009 DHHL Papakōlea Regional Plan: 1) Native Hawaiian Education Culture Community Center; and 2) Hawaiian Homestead Kūpuna Living Center.
