U.S. House OKs Native Hawaiian housing program

Honolulu, Hawaii (AP)9-07

The U.S. House has approved the Native American Housing and Self-determination Act.

But Hawaii’s Democratic Reps. Neil Abercrombie and Mazie Hirono had to fend off Republican efforts to kill the legislation’s Native Hawaiian housing program.

Abercrombie says the program wasn’t a partisan issue until this year.

The program provides loan guarantees for people who cannot find regular home mortgages because they’re building on designated Hawaiian home lands.

It also provides block grants for the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands to build roads and utility lines for affordable housing.
