Native Hawaiian Federal Interagency Working Group MOU Signed

Last edited 11/29/2023

The Native Hawaiian Federal Interagency Working Group (Working Group) was first established in February 2011, with the signing of an MOU between the U.S. Department of the Interior, the U.S. Department of Defense, and the U.S. Advisory Council on Historic Preservation.  In November 2016, a new MOU was executed extending the Working Group’s formal existence to 2021 and adding the Small Business Administration to the group.  The Working Group will continue to provide guidance and assist Federal Agencies with their compliance activities associated with (1) administration of Federal Programs that directly and/or uniquely affect the Native Hawaiian Community, and (2) consultation with Native Hawaiian organizations regarding the potential effects of Federal Programs and activities on Native Hawaiian organizations’ resources, rights, or lands.
