If your organization meets the criteria, submit an application. We made it easy to apply and a little support can often go a long way.”
The general criteria for qualified applications includes: projects and activities that enhance and improve the general welfare of the people of Oahu, protect its natural environment, and implement plans to maintain or improve the quality of life of its citizens.
