The Community Restoration Partnership (CRP) provides support for on-the-ground lower watershed and 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 Hawaii; 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 2017, HCF and its partners – the Harold K.L. Castle Foundation, the Weissman Family Foundation, the Kamehameha Schools, and the Marisla Foundation – awarded the following 12 organizations statewide with funding for watershed and coastal restoration projects.
