County officials put out RFP to select nonprofits to manage the implementation, financial distribution of North Shore Watershed Flood Mitigation Sub-grants

LĪHU‘E – The County of Kaua‘i is issuing a Request for Proposal to select a nonprofit organization to manage the implementation and financial distribution of $7,285,000 for North Shore Watershed
Flood Mitigation Sub-grants.

“Mahalo to our state legislators for providing the funding for our community that the historic 2018 April floods impacted,” said Derek S. K. Kawakami. “The selected nonprofit organization will serve as a custodian for the funds, liaison with various stakeholders, foster consensus in the community, develop a process to award flood migration sub-grants, monitor the sub-grantees, and report to the County at a minimum quarterly.”

The program is intended to ultimately produce multiple sub-grants to other nonprofit organizations to conduct mitigation projects that reduce harm from future flooding events through structural and nonstructural actions, interventions, and investments.

The selected nonprofit organization may not itself conduct a flood mitigation project with these
funds. Specific details regarding proposals and required documentation will be provided in the Request for Proposal.

All proposals will be reviewed subject to the County of Kaua‘i’s review process. Proposals are
due by Nov. 15, 2021. Proposals received after the deadline will not be considered. Notification of
approval for funding shall be made no later than Dec. 3, 2021.

You may submit proposals or questions about the Request for Proposals to Ronn Miyashiro at
rmiyashiro@kauai.gov.
