STATE NOW ACCEPTING GRANT-IN-AID APPLICATIONS

Deadline for GIA applications is January 19, 2018

HONOLULU, Hawai‘i – Senate Ways and Means Committee Chair Donovan M. Dela Cruz and House Finance Committee Chair Sylvia Luke announced that qualified nonprofit and other organizations can now apply for State Grants-in-Aid (GIA) for the 2018 Legislative Session. The deadline to submit grant applications is 4:30 p.m. January 19, 2018.

Last year, the Legislature awarded nearly $30 million in grants to non-profit organizations across the state for various public purposes recognized as priorities and seen as complimentary to state government functions, including health, educational, workforce development, social services and cultural and historical activities.
