We reviewed 41 funds and accounts administered by the Department of Human Services (DHS) and its administratively attached agency, the Hawai‘i Public Housing Authority (HPHA) – specifically, 15 special funds, 8 revolving funds, 7 trust funds, and 11 trust accounts. We found 1 special fund, 3 revolving funds, 1 trust fund, and 1 trust account did not meet criteria. We recommended the special fund, the trust fund, and one revolving fund be closed because they no longer serve the purpose for which they were originally established. We also recommended that the trust account be reclassified to a trust fund and one revolving fund be reclassified to a special fund. Lastly, we recommended that one revolving fund be repealed because it is not financially self-sustaining.
