HTA seeking projects to fund in 2011


The Hawaii Tourism Authority is seeking to fund projects qualifying under its 2011 Natural Resources Program and its Kukulu Ola – Living Hawaiian Culture Program (LHCP). Recognizing the importance of providing a visitor experience that is distinctive and authentic, HTA remains committed to supporting product development initiatives across the state.

Information packets are available at HTA’s office in Honolulu; through HTA’s website; or by contacting HTA at (808) 973-2258 or (808) 973-2252.

Written proposals for each program must be received by the HTA at its office no later than 4:30 p.m. Nov. 4.

HTA’s Natural Resources program supports projects that help to manage, improve and protect Hawaii’s natural environment and areas frequented by visitors.

More than $1 million will be made available to support efforts that implement the goal of the Natural Resources Strategic Initiative as identified in the Hawaii Tourism Strategic Plan: 2005-2015 (TSP).

Projects that received funding in 2010 include the Poo Hoohoo Mauka Nene Habitat Enhancement Project, the Pavilion at Naohulelua Historical Garden, the Marine Resources Protection Program, and the Volunteering on Vacation program.

The LHCP supports projects that are in line with the Hawaiian Culture Strategic Initiative of the TSP – to honor and perpetuate the Hawaiian culture and community. Projects that received funding last year include Project Hookipa, Moku O Keawe International Festival and Kapahu Living Farms.

A complete list of projects that received funding under each program in 2010 is available on HTA’s website:
