The County of Maui Community Development Block Grant Program is seeking funding proposals for a second round of proposals for a total of $1.7 million for Fund Year 2015 (July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016).

The deadline to submit proposals is Friday, May 8, 2015,by 3 p.m.

Proposals may be submitted in person or via mail:

In person:


ATTN. 2015 CDBG Application
CDBG Program Office
251 Napua Street in Wailuku


Via mail (must be received by the deadline):
ATTN. 2015 CDBG Application
Office of the Mayor, CDBG Program Office
200 S. High Street, 9th Floor
Wailuku, HI 96793

The County Council rejected the following projects proposed by the CDBG program earlier this year:

  1. Ka Hale A Ke Ola, $653,869 for rehabilitation and improvements to its homeless shelter;
  2. County of Maui, $650,000 for a Maui Fire Department pumper truck for Pukoʻo, Molokaʻi;
  3. Lānaʻi Community Health Center, $54,170 for infrastructure;
  4. County of Maui, $24,000 for a Maui Police Department emergency response UTV for Hāna, Maui;
  5. Planning costs of $25,000, mandatory program for consolidated plan; and
  6. 2015 CDBG Program Administrative costs of $304,553.

Because these were rejected, a second round of proposals is being sought for review. (Projects that were submitted in the initial round are not eligible for consideration in the second round.)


Project proposals must comply with CDBG criteria, eligibility requirements and program objectives. Project proposals must be consistent with the county’s goals and priority needs as identified in the 2015-19 Consolidated Plan, including housing, homelessness and community development needs.

For more information on the application process, go online, call 270-7213 or send an email to CDBG.
