Department of Water Supply (DWS) Watershed Grants Program
DWS has awarded grants to eleven Watershed Protection Grants Program Grantees on Maui and Molokai to help ensure that upland watersheds are efficiently functioning and recharging freshwater resources for the people of Maui to enjoy in perpetuity.
Since 1997, the DWS has provided $23.7 million dollars of funding to a total of 54 partners. The partners represent a diverse group from the private and business sectors, nonprofit organizations, schools and various levels of government. Quarterly reporting from our Grantees are reviewed and analyzed to see how the county grant funds are spent to meet expected deliverables and what the results have been.
