Today, U.S. Senator Brian Schatz announced $1.56 million from the Department of Health and Human Services for Native Hawaiian programs aimed at developing sustainable agriculture, creating stronger families, and expanding job opportunities by funding community-based projects.

"The grants announced today will provide job and educational opportunities that will help Native Hawaiian families ensure greater economic self-sufficiency, and better lives for their children," said U.S. Senator Brian Schatz.
