Purpose of Program: The purpose of the Native Hawaiian Education (NHE) program is to support innovative projects that enhance the educational services provided to Native Hawaiian children and adults. These projects may include those activities authorized under section 7205(a)(3) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended (ESEA). Note: In prior years, Congress has expressly authorized that program funds may be used to support the construction, renovation, or modernization of any elementary school, secondary school, or structure related to an elementary school or secondary school, run by the Department of Education of the State of Hawaii, that served a predominately Native Hawaiian student body. This will be a permissible use of fiscal year (FY) 2011 funds only if Congress specifically authorizes the use of these funds for this purpose.

Applications for grants under the NHE program, CFDA number 84.362A, must be submitted electronically using the Governmentwide Grants.gov Apply site at www.Grants.gov.

Native Hawaiian Library Services

Deadline: May 16, 2011 Grant Amount: Varies Grant Period: One year

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 areas that now comprise the state of Hawaii. See program guidelines for specific eligibility criteria.

Program Overview: The Native Hawaiian Library Services grant program supports library services to the native Hawaiian community to enhance existing library services or to implement new library services, particularly as they relate to the priorities of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) listed here:

•       To expand services for learning and access to information and educational resources in a variety of formats, in all types of libraries, for individuals of all ages,

•        To develop library services that provide all users with access to information through local, state, regional, national, and international electronic networks,

•        To provide electronic and other linkages between and among all types of libraries,

•        To develop public and private partnerships with other agencies and community-based organizations,

•        To target library services to help increase access and ability to use information resources for individuals of diverse geographic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds, individuals with disabilities, and individuals with limited functional literacy or information skills, and

•       To target library and information services to help increase access and ability to use information resources for persons having difficulty using a library and for underserved urban and rural communities, including children from birth to age 17 from families with incomes below the poverty line (as defined by the Office of Management and Budget).
