The Office of Hawaiian Affairs announced that nonprofit organizations across the state have only six chances left to attend mandatory workshops for its grants program. To attend on Maui, there’s only one chance left on July 22.
The grant money tied to these workshops is intended to help OHA achieve one or more of 10 strategic results for Native Hawaiians.
Among the results are meeting achievement standards in education; lowering chronic disease rates; and increasing the earning power of families within the Hawaiian community.
Here’s a breakdown of the grants that require applicants to attend mandatory workshops:
- Kauhale Grant makes up to $25,000 available to fund proposals;
- Kamoku Grant makes up to $50,000 available to fund proposals;
- Kaiāulu Grant makes up to $100,000 available
OHA’s “Granting for Results” workshops are scheduled for 9 a.m. Tuesday, July 19 in Honolulu; 9 a.m. Wednesday, July 20 in Waianae; and 9 a.m. Friday, July 22 on Maui.
