More than $28 million in federal grants will help fund the efforts of the Native Hawaiian Education Program.

U.S. Senators Mazie Hirono and Brian Schatz announced that the U.S. Department of Education is awarding 35 grants to various Native Hawaiian educational and community-based organizations.

Grantees include the University of Hawaiʻi system, Keiki O Ka ʻAina Family Learning Centers, and Partners in Development Foundation. The UH system will receive about $9.35 million, according to the Hirono.

Schatz says the funding “will ensure Native Hawaiian education programs have the resources they need to support students in time for the upcoming school year.”
