Hawaii Tourism Authority 2010 Natural Resources Program awards
The Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA), the state agency for tourism, has announced the selection of 27 community-based projects throughout the state to receive funding in 2010 through its Natural Resources Program.
“Visitors from all over the world continue to choose Hawaii as a premier travel destination to experience the natural beauty of our islands and the aloha spirit of our people,” said Mike McCartney, HTA’s president and chief executive officer. “HTA remains committed to supporting product development initiatives that showcase Hawaii’s unique tourism product.”
HTA’s Natural Resources Program began in 2002 in response to a legislative mandate, stated within Chapter 201B of the Hawaii Revised Statutes that directs the HTA to provide at least US$1 million annually to assist projects and programs that support efforts to manage, improve, and protect Hawaii’s natural environment and areas frequented by visitors.
