Common Ground Collective received $172,500 to provide local food security and economic support. The seed grant supports their project to ensure fire-displaced Maui residents receive locally-grown, culturally-appropriate food and that Maui’s farmers and growers are paid a just, fair-market price for their yield.
Honolulu Civil Beat, Inc. received $250,000 to support their efforts to provide a local, dedicated journalism team in Maui focused on providing accurate and free community information, informed debate, leadership accountability and encouraging action.
Maui United Way received $125,000 for its disaster relief fund to provide direct cash assistance to those who lived in the fire impact zone. The process they established to deploy these funds is equitable, accessible and supports those most critically in need.
New grantee partners will be posted as additional grant funds are awarded.
