Federal Grant Technical Assistance Pilot Program
HANO is continuing to pilot a new Grants Technical Assistance Services program for nonprofits pursuing or planning to pursue a federal grant in the near future. Since the program launched in March 2021, we have accepted and are working with our first round of applicants on a robust set of federal projects, most of them having submitted applications as of mid-July 2021. As of August 1, 2021, we are now launching round two of the program and welcoming new applications at the link below.
The intention of the pilot program is to test an approach to building capacity and harnessing more federal resources for Hawaiʻi nonprofits. HANO is particularly interested in projects that encourage (a) collaborative efforts, within the nonprofit sector and across sectors, and/or (b) the concepts of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Free technical assistance services will be provided through a pool of providers experienced in working with nonprofits. Up to a cap of $1,000 in services per entity, participant organizations will be able to access federal grants coaching, application review, or copy editing services, as well as referrals to connect separately with other services that may be needed outside the scope of the pilot program.

Testimonials from Round 1 applicants:
“…we found the process extremely worthwhile. It helped us understand that we need to think more strategically and start earlier.”
“Yes, we will definitely submit a federal grant next year and would like to apply for GTAS assistance which really helped us to feel confident we have the ability to develop a strong proposal in the future.”
“The coaching process made it easier to understand what needed to be done and provided me the confidence needed to prepare and work through the 2nd part of the grant submission. In the event that we do not get funded, the experience gained is priceless that will allow us to apply for future grants.”
