Grants to Hawaii nonprofits and government agencies for community impact programming that benefits women, elderly, children and youth, needy, and the impoverished. Eligible programs are those that focus on education and arts, healthcare and basic needs, and social services. Social services include programming in the areas of drug rehabilitation, family abuse, job rehabilitation, and services for the elderly, terminally ill, and disabled. Funding should support direct program needs and not overhead costs.
- Is the nonprofit focused and best able to provide an unfilled need for Hawaii's children, youth, women, elderly, and needy?
- Does the program have clearly defined goals, action plans, and measurable outcomes?
- Will the program significantly deliver on its services?
- Will the grant award be used efficiently? How little of the financial support will be used for overhead costs, and how much will be used for direct program needs?
