Kukulu Ola – Living Hawaiian Culture Program
This HTA program provides funding through requests for proposals (RFP) to support organizations that enhance, strengthen and perpetuate the Hawaiian culture. Each year, the HTA selects a small group of worthy organizations that will receive funding through its Kukulu Ola program. The program awards funds up to $100,000 to community based non-profits statewide.
The programs were chosen by the HTA and its Hawaiian Cultural Advisory Committee on criteria designed to address the goal and objectives identified in the 2016 HTA Strategic Plan. The objectives include: strengthening the relationship between the visitor industry and the Hawaiian community; nurturing the Hawaiian culture by supporting Hawaiian programs and cultural practitioners, craftsmen, musicians, and other artists that preserve and perpetuate the Hawaiian culture.
