County seeks nonprofit to manage North Shore Watershed Flood Mitigation sub-grants

LIHU‘E — The county is seeking a nonprofit organization to manage the distribution of over $7 million in sub-grants in funding that’s a result of the historic 2018 April floods.

North Shore Watershed Flood Mitigation Sub-grants consists of a total of $7,285,000 to give away to other groups to conduct mitigation projects that reduce harm from future flooding events through structural and nonstructural actions, interventions, and investments.

The selected nonprofit organization may not itself conduct a flood mitigation project with these funds. Specific details regarding proposals and required documentation will be provided in the Request for Proposal.

The selected nonprofit will be expected to meet with North Shore Flood Grantee Committee and Hanalei Flood Community Advisory Team periodically to be apprised of ongoing flood mitigation efforts. Award of the mitigation subgrants is targeted for March 2024.

All proposals will be reviewed subject to the County of Kaua‘i’s review process. Proposals are due by Nov. 15. Proposals received after the deadline will not be considered. Notification of approval for funding shall be made no later than Dec. 3.

There will be an informational webinar about the grant on Wednesday at 9 a.m.

Proposals or questions can be submitted to Ronn Miyashiro at
