Grants-in-Aid (GIAs)

Last Updated: 06/18/19

The Hawaii State Legislature awards grants funded by the State funds under Hawaii Revised Statutes, Chapter 42F. Chapter 42F Grants (frequently known as “Grants-in-Aid” or GIAs) are awarded for two types of requests:

  • Capital Improvement Projects (CIPs) to construct and/or repair buildings and other facilities.
  • Operating funds to support programs.

The Legislature designates which executive department agency will administer and oversee the expenditures for your grant.  Click below for a complete list:

Appropriations with the OCS program code of LBR903 were assigned to the Office of Community Services (OCS) for administering and overseeing.  OCS follows State laws, rules, policies, and other requirements to manage GIAs.  For a listing of GIAs funded by the 2019 Legislature administered by OCS, click here.
