Turnkey awards are lots with pre-built single-family homes

Recognizing that some beneficiaries are not comfortable with, or able to, plan, design, and organize the construction of a home, the Department develops turnkey homes for their convenience. For more information regarding the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands, please click on the link below.
