OHA now accepting applications for its Grants Program for events

HONOLULU (July 30, 2019) – Organizations in need of financial assistance to hold community events may apply for funding from OHA’s ‘Ahahui Grants Program beginning August 5.

OHA’s ʻAhahui Grants Program provides funding to support eligible organizations hosting community events that benefit the Native Hawaiian community and align with OHA’s Strategic Results.

There are $100,000 in funds that are available for this current application solicitation, which covers events occurring between Jan. 1, 2020 and June 30, 2020. Non-profit organizations may apply for grant awards up to $10,000 and may only receive one ‘Ahahui grant award in a single fiscal year.

Preferred events are those that are one-time, open to the larger community and publicly announced. OHA also considers events that:

  • Are for a specific, select audience;
  • Include a fee; or
  • Are a series that occur under a single theme over multiple dates within a 30-day period.


Prospective applicants are encouraged to attend at least one of the two ‘Ahahui Orientation Sessions:

  • Friday, August 9, 2019 – 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. HST (Skype Online Orientation)
  • Monday, August 12, 2019 – 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. HST


The deadline to submit applications is September 13.
