Governor David Ige announced the release of $364,445,224 for capital improvement projects to be administered by various state departments. These funds were released in November and December 2021, and January 2022.

“Despite the setbacks resulting from the pandemic, I remain committed to improving the well-being and quality of life for all Hawaii residents. Through these projects, we continue to improve and modernize the state of readiness of our health care system, provide more affordable housing, and expand University of Hawaii system facilities to diversify our workforce and train our leaders of tomorrow,” Governor Ige said.

In Maui, the funding includes $9,850,000 for the Kāʻanapali Beach Restoration and Berm Improvement Project to restore the beach and increase the elevation of the sand berm in Kāʻanapali. There was also $2,800,000 released in December 2021 for watershed protection and ungulate fencing. The funds will go towards new watershed protection units and ungulate fences to exclude deer from the axis of Maui’s priority areas. In November 2021, $14,000,000 was released to fund the design and construction of the Hāna Freeway improvements from Huelo to Hāna on Maui.
