Through a federal stimulus grant, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act “Communities Putting Prevention to Work” from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, NPAC was able to:

  • advocate for the successful passage of a Complete Streets resolution.
  • offer numerous “Walk, Talk & Grinds” events that included walks, presentations followed by a health meal. Most of the events were held at Kaunoa Senior Center with the walks taking place on the Northshore Greenway.
  • Advocate for a $150,000 FY 2012 budget for the design of the Northshore Greenway completion.
  • Instituted a Mea `Ai Pono program which was developed specifically to work with halau, clubs and organizations to provide interactive education about
    1. The importance of Hawaiian foods and their importance to the Hawaiian lifestyle;
    2. Proper protocols of chant that are introduced for the foods being prepared;
    3. How to utilize the Hawaiian way of life to improve eating habits for better health. Twenty-four demonstrations/workshops were provided, reaching more than 1,100 individuals.
  • Provided Fun 5 healthy eating and non-competitive sports education for after-school providers at all sites in Maui County. For the first time, training was brought to the remote communities of Hana, Lana`i and Moloka`i.
