Lo­cal Sites Earn HTA Sup­port

MidWeek Islander (Central Oahu) - - News -

The city has an­nounced Hawaii Tourism Au­thor­ity grants for dozens of Oahu non­prof­its to sup­port their 2010 events and projects that “stim­u­late and di­ver­sify tourism.”

“The grant awards help pro­vide res­i­dents and vis­i­tors with op­por­tu­ni­ties to en­joy tra­di­tional cul­tural events and unique new ex­pe­ri­ences,” said Mayor Mufi Han­ne­mann. “As al­ways, we had many more re­quests for sup­port than we had money” ($350,000 out of $1.7 mil­lion re­quested).

Be­low are the Cen­tral Oahu area re­cip­i­ents.

• Haleiwa Arts Fes­ti­val, an­nual event, $10,000

• North Shore Cham­ber of Com­merce, North Shore Her­itage & farm tours, $5,000
