Commission Identifies Grants to Assist District One Families

Honolulu City Council Member Kymberly Pine

BY HONOLULU CITY COUNCIL MEMBER KIMBERLY PINE - Non-profit organizations and community partners in our district will benefit from close to $600,000 in City grants this year.  In 2012, voters amended the City Charter to set aside one-half of one percent of general funds for Grants in Aid.

For Fiscal Year 2015, the Grants in Aid Advisory Commission made 33 recommendations to disperse the grants among the nine City Council Districts, 17 of which are designated to our district.

  • Lanakila Meals on Wheels
  • American National Red Cross
  • Special Olympics Hawaii
  • Easter Seals Hawaii
  • U.S. VETS
  • Kahi Mohala
  • Hale Kipa
  • The Salvation Army
  • Agricultural Leadership Foundation of Hawaii
  • Best Buddies
  • St. Francis Healthcare Foundation of Hawaii
  • Project Vision Hawaii
  • Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific
  • Kuakini Geriatric Care
  • Legal Aid Society of Hawaii
  • Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawaii
  • Waianae District Comprehensive Health & Hospital Board

The Commission’s recommendations will be considered through the City’s budget process.

Mahalo to all of the organizations that applied for these very competitive grants. Your commitment to our communities serves as a shining example to us all.

If you know of a non-profit organization or community partner in our district that may qualify and benefit from the Grants in Aid Fund in the future, please feel free to contact me to receive updates and information by e-mailing me at kmpine@honolulu.gov or by calling (808) 768-5001. The Request for Proposal process for  Fiscal Year 2016 will occur during the fall of this year.
