Mayor urges nonprofits to apply for funds through city’s Grants In Aid program

News Release from City and County of Honolulu November 25, 2013

Honolulu – Qualified nonprofit organizations seeking grants available through the city’s Grants In Aid (GIA) program have until December 19 to submit proposals, Mayor Kirk Caldwell announced today. The charter-mandated fund administered by the Department of Community Services (DCS) was established to serve economically and/or socially disadvantaged populations, or provide services for public benefit in the areas of arts, culture, economic development, or the environment.

The city is mandated by the charter amendment to set aside one-half of one percent of general funds for Grants in Aid. A minimum of $250,000 will be awarded in each of the nine (9) Council Districts for the following:

Public Services

Funds in this category are used to support qualified public services and programs for target populations deemed by the city to be most vulnerable including (but not limited to) seniors, persons with disabilities, children, victims of domestic violence, homeless persons, and those suffering from the effects of substance abuse or mental health ailments.

Arts, Culture, and Community / Economic Development and the Environment

Funds in this category are used to support sustainable improvement in the well-being and quality of life within local communities, especially those in low- to moderate-income areas. Projects may include (but are not limited to) the creation, development and empowerment of community-based organizations. They may involve planning, organizational support, and technical assistance; supporting financial literacy programs and services; supporting micro-enterprise and business training; and supporting programs that promote cultural or environmental enhancement, protection, or awareness.
