Grant Programs - Native Hawaiian Library Services

Eligibility: Native Hawaiian Library Services grants are available to nonprofit organizations that primarily serve and represent Native Hawaiians (as the term is defined in 20 U.S.C. § 7517). The term "Native Hawaiian" refers to an individual who is a citizen of the United States and a descendant of the aboriginal people who, before 1778, occupied and exercised sovereignty in the area that now comprises the State of Hawaii.

A grantee with an active Native Hawaiian Grant may not apply for another Native Hawaiian grant that would have an overlapping period of performance with the active grant.
