Aloha Chamber Members,

The weather over the past couple of days has disrupted many businesses and their operations, as well as families and homes.  

If your business or home was impacted, the City and County of Honolulu’s DEM Emergency Operations Center has issued forms for self-reporting any storm-related damage. While these forms are for information-gathering purposes only, the City plans to use the information to determine whether they can request federal assistance. Here are the self-reporting links:

Also, the December 10th deadline to order the Hawaii Restaurant Card and receive cards by the end of the year is fast-approaching.  Interested purchasers can for more information or to place an order. The cards make nice holiday gifts for employees or as charitable donations, while supporting an industry that has been severely impacted by the pandemic.

Stay safe, dry and healthy.

Laulima & mahalo,


COVID-19 Economic Injury Disaster LoanTargeted EIDL Advance and Supplemental Targeted Advance applications will be accepted until December 31, 2021. Applications will be processed after the deadline, including reconsiderations, but new applications won’t be accepted after the deadline. For more information on all programs, click here.

On the latest episode of Military in Hawaii, CDR Dave Haile, executive officer of the USS Daniel Inouye (DDG 118), and Jack Shriver, senior vice president of the Navy League, spoke with host Jay Fidell about the newest guided missile destroyer, DDG 118. Haile shared what makes the ship unique and the significance of its namesake. DDG 118 is named after the Honorable Daniel K. Inouye, U.S. Senator (Sep. 7, 1924 – Dec. 17, 2012). Shriver talked about the ship’s christening in Bath, Maine, traditions of the U.S. Navy and DDG 118’s commissioning. To watch the full episode, click here
