Hawaii County to consider requests from nonprofits


HILO >> Officials with the Hawaii County Council are set to begin the process of determining how to divide $1.5 million among dozens of nonprofit groups asking for more than double that amount.

The Tribune-Herald reports the council’s Human Services, Social Services and Public Safety Committee is scheduled to meet Tuesday to consider requests from 60 nonprofits who are asking for a combined $3.2 million for the budget year beginning July 1.

Several organizations are asking for more than $100,000 each, with Hale Aloha O Hilo Habitat for Humanity Inc. topping the list with a request for $155,855.

The group says it would use the money to build three affordable homes in East Hawaii.
