Grants to Hawaii community-based service organizations to provide financial assistance to needy adults and children. Recipient organizations will distribute funds to eligible older adults for various basic needs. In addition, funds may be used in support of children's educational, extracurricular activities, quality of life enhancements, and basic needs.

The Persons in Need (PIN) program provides block grants to community-based service organizations, which in turn distribute these funds in the form of financial assistance for eligible adults and children. Assistance from the Teresa Hughes Trust is intended to provide financial help in areas where other services are unavailable. Grantees may propose an administrative fee (maximum 10% of grant) for administering these funds.

The two groups of individuals eligible for assistance are Adults and Children.

(1) Is at least 70 years of age
(2) Is physically or mentally ill
(3) Is in financial need

(2) Has been abused, neglected or abandoned, or resides in a household where abuse has occurred
(3) Is in financial need
