Hawaii Appleseed Center Proposals

September 15, 2012 | Filed Under: Important News

The Hawaii Appleseed Center for Law and Economic Justice wishes to receive proposals from community organizations and/or private business who are interested in developing improvements or providing services to residents of the Towers at Kuhio Park and Kuhio Homes. The types of improvements or services that will be considered for funding include but are not limited to the following areas:

 

· Early childhood educational and nutritional programs for children
· Job training for residents in areas where job growth is strong
· Development or continuation of vibrant resident associations
· Legal services to residents who would otherwise not have access to them
· Community gardens and support for their operation
· Staff the operation of the existing playground

 

We have approximately $240,000 available for distribution under this current Request for Proposals. This funding is the result of litigation that sought to improve conditions for all tenants in both housing projects as well as ensure that individuals with disabilities were able to freely access their apartments and be provided with reasonable accommodations when requested. Attached are copies of the RFP as well as a description of the history and activities of the Hawaii Appleseed Center for Law and Economic Justice.

All proposals must be submitted by Friday, October 5th. If you have any questions please call Jen Andrews at 808-587-7605 or by email at jennifer@lejhawaii.org
