Lili‘uokalani Trust, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, and Kamehameha Schools’ Strategy & Transformation Group are collaborating to conduct this survey to better understand and represent Native Hawaiian and other resident’s opinions of Hawai‘i’s economy. We hope to gain insights on:

  • your economic experiences before the COVID-19 pandemic;
  • the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on you and your ‘ohana (family); and
  • what you envision as Hawai’i’s economic future, post-COVID-19.
We highly encourage all community members to spend a few minutes to complete this survey, as your feedback may be widely shared to help guide the development of Hawai’i’s economy.

This survey will take 15-20 minutes. It will be left open so you can complete it multiple times, up to once a week, if your opinions change.
