Biennium Grants Application Available in July 2014

The Hawai‘i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts provides public funds via its HSFCA Biennium Grants Program to support projects designed to preserve and further culture, the arts, history, and/or the humanities beneficial to Hawai‘i. The legal provisions of the Biennium Grants Program are in Sections 9-11 through 9-18 of the Hawai‘i Revised Statutes. The Grants Program budget is contingent on the State fiscal biennium and appropriations from the Hawai‘i State Legislature.

The program will be accepting applications in the fall of 2014 for the upcoming biennium (FY2015-FY2016 and FY2016-FY2017). Through this program, funding is awarded to organizations conducting programming in the arts, culture, history and the humanities that benefit the people of Hawai‘i. Updates regarding submission deadlines, grant workshops, etc. can be found on the Ko‘o Hana Noeau website at culturegrants-hi.org beginning in July 2014.

Biennium Grants Program Guidelines are available here: Grant Guidelines.
