The County of Maui is now accepting proposals for tourism related programs on Maui, Moloka`i and Lana`i for the calendar year 2013 under the County Product Enrichment Program (CPEP).

Last year, 24 events were funded in Maui County. 2012 events funded through the CPEP program included the Wailuku First Friday, Wailea Food & Wine Festival, Maui Matsuri, Maui Classifical Music Festival, Henry K. Allen Hawaiian Steel Guitar Festival, and the Maui Chinese New Year.

Managed through the County’s Office of Economic Development, the CPEP program is supported with funding through the Hawai`i Tourism Authority.

The intent of the program is to diversify and enrich Hawaii’s tourism product by developing new and enhancing existing community-based events, experiences, and projects related to the niches of agriculture, culture, education, nature, health & wellness, sports, and technology.


Legal non-profit as well as for-profit organizations and government agencies are eligible to apply. Written proposals are due on November 5, 2012.


Application packets are available at the County’s Office of Economic Development located at One Maui Plaza, Suite 305 in Wailuku, or may be downloaded at:
