Hawaii--Approximately $3.5 million in grants were awarded by the U.S. Department of Education this summer to eight Honolulu-area organizations for innovative projects to improve education.

Approximately $3.5 million in grants were awarded by the U.S. Department of Education this summer to eight Honolulu-area organizations for innovative projects to improve education. Funded through No Child Left Behind's Native Hawaiian Education Program, these efforts range from beginning reading to gifted and talented programs. One project seeks to break the "culture of poverty" among homeless families through a mobile preschool outreach designed to transition more than 700 children and adults into emergency shelters, which also will house family literacy services. In addition, the University of Hawaii at Hilo received a $344,930 award from the Department to create a system of services promoting literacy and oral proficiency among students in grades K-3 at Hawaiian Language Immersion Program schools.
