The Maui program is based on the Moloka`i model and has been in existence for 7 years with 6 rounds of grantees. More group projects were awarded than on Molokai, including cattle producers and a local vegetable producer cooperative. Diversified farming projects have included traditional taro production, persimmons, strawberries, coffee, Maui sweet onions, lavender and value added products. An advisory committee of agricultural leaders has helped guide the program and make grantee selections. Funding for the islands of Lanai and Maui for FY 2010 is $ 241,000. From this project’s inception, over $1 million dollars, matched locally by over $ 200, 000, has been invested in agricultural development on the islands of Maui and Lana’i.
