Strengthening Hawai‘i’s Communities
Community Restoration Partnership

Full Color

The Community Restoration Partnership (CRP) is a multi-year grant program that provides support for coastal restoration projects in Hawai’i that involve community stewardship activities and focus on durable and sustainable positive impacts on coastal and near shore marine areas. CRP’s goals are to support quality physical restoration projects that: are informed by data, sound science, and capture and reinforce traditional cultural values of Hawai‘i; engage local community groups in active and ongoing environmental stewardship; exhibit collaboration between multiple partners, and encourage science-based monitoring with data to track the impact of restoration over time.

In 2019, HCF and its partners – the Harold K.L. Castle Foundation, the Oak Foundation, the Weissman Family Foundation, the Kamehameha Schools, the Marisla Foundation, the Atherton Family Foundation, the Traut Carson Fund at HCF, and the Jeanne Herbert fund at HCF – awarded the following 16 organizations statewide with funding for coastal restoration projects.
