“This is just the beginning. Our New Day Work Projects will directly attack unemployment by putting people to work right away and jump start business activity,” said Gov. Abercrombie. “It will provide an economic boost that will reverberate throughout the state and result in paychecks for Hawai’i families,” said the Governor.

Governor Abercrombie has also called for $1.7 billion in CIP funds for the biennium budget for future New Day Work Projects which is currently moving through the Legislature.

“We took a look at CIP projects that were appropriated by the Legislature and worked quickly to release funds to the projects that fall in line with our New Day Works Projects initiative,” said Gov. Abercrombie. “These are projects that ensure a broad distribution of economic and community benefits. We are building vital infrastructure that will advance a sustainable economy while investing in our workforce as well,” he said.
