Hawaii Women’s Legal Foundation is accepting grant applications to help improve the legal status and welfare of women and children in the state.
The foundation announced Friday the deadline for applications is July 8.
Grant amounts typically range from $500 to $5,000 but the foundation says it occasionally gives more substantial awards to a particularly worthy application that supports the mission of helping Hawaii’s women and children.
Criteria the foundation is looking for include improving access to the legal system, reducing abuse and increasing financial independence.
An example of a previous grant is an award to Neighborhood Place of Wailuku to provide family strengthening activities and programs for single women households with young children.
