And even cheaper back from...

Hawaii hopes the "return to home" program will help the state save on the millions it spends each year on food, shelter and other services for the homeless.

Hawaii is trying a new approach to cut down on the number of homeless in the Aloha State: Ship some of them back to the mainland.

Under a "return to home" three-year pilot program set to launch this fiscal year, the state will buy one-way tickets on planes - and possible even beds on cruise ships - to return eligible homeless people to their families in the continental U.S.

Lawmakers have appropriated an initial $100,000 to fund the program, which will be run by the state Department of Human Services.

The department has expressed concerns about the program's cost and the nature of services to be provided, among other issues.
