OHA releases grant solicitations for teachers and the Native Hawaiian community

HONOLULU (March 29, 2021) – The Office of Hawaiian Affairs announced today the release of two grant solicitations totaling $750,000 to provide needed support and assistance to the Native Hawaiian community.

OHA has committed $250,000 to a Native Hawaiian Teacher Education and Professional Development grant designed to increase teacher recruitment and retention in Hawaiian immersion and Hawaiian-focused public charter schools. OHA has also committed $500,000 to OHA’s Kūlia grant program, designed to improve the lives of Native Hawaiian individuals, families and communities in alignment with OHA’s strategic plan framework.

Applications are being solicited from nonprofit organizations that administer community-based projects designed to strengthen Native Hawaiian beneficiaries, families, and communities.

Grant awards will run from $50,000 to $175,000 for the Native Hawaiian Teacher Education and Professional Development grant while Kūlia grant awards will range from $25,000 to $100,000. 

“The Native Hawaiian Teacher Education and Professional Development grant is a new grant that directly relates to our strategic plan strategy of supporting education in our Hawaiian medium and focused charter schools. The Kūlia grant is our broad-based grant, which can be used for a range of purposes that serve our Native Hawaiian community,” said OHA Board Chair Carmen “Hulu” Lindsey. 

For each solicitation, a pre-recorded solicitation orientation session along with a PowerPoint presentation will be posted to the OHA Grants Program webpage on April 1, 2021. The grant application deadline for both solicitations is April 16, 2021.
