Hawaii Tourism Authority Chooses Programs for Funding

The Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA), the state agency for tourism, with guidance from the Hawaiian Cultural Program Advisory Council (HCPAC), has selected 27 programs to receive $600,000 in funding through its Kukulu Ola – Living Hawaiian Culture Program (LHCP) in 2010.
The programs selected address the goal of the Hawaiian Culture Strategic Initiative “to honor and perpetuate the Hawaiian culture and community,” as articulated in the Hawaii Tourism Strategic Plan: 2005-2015 (TSP). The purpose of the LHCP is to support programs that help to honor and preserve the Hawaiian culture, demonstrate collaborative efforts with a high degree of community support and involvement, exhibit depth and breadth of experience in performing
similar work, and has an adequate plan for sustainability into the future.
