Release M-51  




          The City is encouraging organizations to apply for grants of up to $5,000 to create new works of culture and art, Mayor Mufi Hannemann announced today (July 15).


            The grants are available in the fields of dance, theatre, music and literature to tax-exempt, charitable and publicly supported organizations (as defined by the Internal Revenue Service) within the City and County of Honolulu.  The projects must benefit the people on the island of Oahu.


            “I am a firm believer in the arts,” said Mayor Hannemann. “This new initiative will encourage the culture and arts community to step forward and partner with the City in showcasing and celebrating the artistic richness of our Honolulu.”


Applicants are invited to contact the Mayor’s Office of Culture and the Arts at 523-4674 or via email at for information regarding application proposals.


            Proposals must be hand-delivered or mailed by September 30, 2005 to the Mayor’s Office of Culture and the Arts, 530 South King St., Room 404, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813.


            As a general rule, organizations will be limited to one grant per fiscal year (July through June).  Funds are not granted for scholarship programs, to benefit individuals, or for religious programs.  Grants are also not generally approved for conferences, festivals or for operating support.


            Proposals will not be accepted from organizations that cannot confirm their 501(c) (3) status.  All funded organizations are required to submit a final grant report, which includes a financial statement for the period in which grant moneys were spent and a narrative describing the outcome of the funded project.
