HONOLULU — Hawaii is set to receive nearly $10 million in federal funding to support Native Hawaiian programs.
The U.S. Department of Education will award Hawaii nearly $7 million to fund Native Hawaiian education programs, while the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will provide nearly $3 million for Native Hawaiian community development and child-care programs.
“This new federal funding means local schools and programs have more resources to support their work and the Native Hawaiian community,” said U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee.
No Kauai organizations received funds.
