There are $100,000 in funds that are available this year through the Office of Hawaiian Affairs’ ‘Ahahui Grants Program.

The deadline to apply is Sept. 21, 2018.

The grants are for organizations seeking financial assistance to hold community events occurring between Jan. 1, 2019 and June 30, 2019.

The program provides funding to support eligible community events that benefit the Native Hawaiian community and align with OHA’s Strategic Results.

Non-profit organizations may apply for grant awards up to $10,000 and may only receive one ‘Ahahui grant award in a single fiscal year.


Preferred events are those that are one-time, open to the larger community and publicly announced. OHA also considers events that:

  • Are for a specific, select audience;
  • Include a fee; or
  • Are a series that occur under a single theme over multiple dates within a 30-day period.

More information about the ‘Ahahui Grants Program, including an online application and deadlines is available online.
