Native Hawaiian Revolving Loan Fund

The State Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) must make available for public inspection and copying the following information about Native Hawaiian Revolving Loan Fund (NHRLF) recipients: name, business address, loan amount, loan purpose, and loan status. Although the NHRLF is administered by the OHA, it is federally funded. Consequently, the OIP determined that it is not a “state or county loan program” that must disclose certain information under section 92F-12(a)(8), Hawaii Revised Statutes.
