Contracts for services generally starting at $25,000 to Hawaii nonprofit organizations and government agencies to protect and preserve the State's natural resources.

Past Aloha ‘Āina projects have included: efforts to remove alien species; projects to re-plant and reestablish native plants and animals; trash removal from natural resources areas; development and installation of interpretive signage to educate visitors about environmental assets; support for rangers and volunteers to provide information on proper ways to interact with Hawai‘i’s wildlife; programs to increase stewardship of the environment by residents and visitors; and repair and maintenance of trails, restrooms, parking areas, and other physical amenities at heavily used sites.
