The Garden Island - - Morning Briefing -

LI­HUE — The Hawaii Tourism Au­thor­ity is pro­vid­ing more than $3.5 mil­lion to 124 pro­grams that are per­pet­u­at­ing Hawai­ian cul­ture, pro­tect­ing nat­u­ral re­sources and show­cas­ing com­mu­nity events in 2018.

Re­cip­i­ents of the fund­ing are non­profit groups, com­mu­nity or­ga­ni­za­tions and in­di­vid­u­als statewide who have demon­strated through pro­pos­als sub­mit­ted to HTA their ded­i­ca­tion to strengthen the en­dur­ing qual­i­ties of Hawaii’s legacy that dis­tin­guish the is­lands as a place to live and visit.

On Kauai, fund­ing went to the Kauai Mu­seum As­so­ci­a­tion for a mul­ti­me­dia gallery, and to Na Kalai Waa o Kauai for a project, “Hookele Waa.”

“Sus­tain­able tourism starts at the com­mu­nity level, and that’s the fo­cus of our sup­port for ini­tia­tives by groups and in­di­vid­u­als who have pledged to make Hawaii a bet­ter place for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions,” said Ge­orge D. Szigeti, HTA pres­i­dent and CEO. ••• The Gar­den Is­land
