Heinz Sablan Hofschneider (born July 1, 1957) is a Northern Mariana Islands politician. Hofschneider served as the Speaker of the Northern Mariana Islands House of Representatives until 2003.

Hofschneider was a gubernatorial candidate in the 2001, 2005, and 2009 elections. His best gubernatorial election result came in 2009, when he was the Republican nominee for Governor of the Northern Mariana Islands in the 2009 gubernatorial election. Representative Arnold I. Palacios of Saipan, the current Speaker of the House, was Hofschneider's running mate for Lieutenant Governor. Hofschneider won the initial popular vote but failed to gain a majority, triggering a runoff against the incumbent, Benigno Fitial. Fitial won the runoff by 370 votes and therefore was re-elected.

Hofschneider ran for governor again in 2014 as an independent. His running mate is independent Senator Ray Yumul of Saipan. Hofschnedier lost to the incumbent, Eloy Inos.

Hofschneider's wife is Susan Sablan Hofschneider. Hofschneider represents Election District 3 in the House, which encompasses portions of Saipan and the Northern Islands.
