Grants starting at $15,000 to USA nonprofits, agencies, tribes, businesses, schools, and individuals to improve and preserve the natural resources of the Hawaii island of Lāna‘i. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to applying. Funding is intended for watershed-level strategies that protect and enhance Lāna‘i’s coral reefs, native plants and animals, endangered Hawaiian petrel habitat, and sensitive coastal cultural sites, while fostering co-management with and engagement of Lāna‘i’s community stakeholders.
The primary focal geography for this RFP is an approximately 20,000 acre area comprised of the northeast watersheds on the island of Lāna‘i that is roughly bounded by Keōmoku Road to the north, the eastern coastline of Lāna‘i, Kapoho Gulch to the south, and over the top of the Lānaʻi Hale ridge to the top of the bench areas (encompassing the remaining native mesic forest).
This grant program is focused on funding projects that take a landscape-level approach to protecting the island from Kuahiwi a Kai – the mountain to the ocean – focusing on native habitat important for Hawaiian petrels in mauka areas, as well as reducing sedimentation into Lāna‘i’s makai marine ecosystems. Approaches include sustainable erosion control, replanting native vegetation, installation of effective ungulate and predator-proof fencing, and controlling invasive species.
This is a 5-year program that will focus on measurable benefits in the Eligible Project Area including:
All proposals must spefically address how projects will directly and measurably contribute to the Kuahiwi A Kai Program goals. To view the 2020 Kuahiwi A Kai Program priority areas, see: https://www.nfwf.org/hawaiiconservation/Documents/2020RFP-Revised.pdf#page=3
