Capital Improvement Program (CIP)

In 2019, the Hawaii State Legislature appropriated Capital Improvement Program (CIP) monies to Hawaii 3R’s to help with the state Department of Education’s repair and maintenance backlog. The backlog runs the gamut from repairing sewer mains to replacing old and worn out rain gutters to repairing ADA ramps. Most of these projects aren’t “sexy” in the way of beautifying school campuses, but they are essential to the health and safety of students, teachers and staff. Qualified contractors from within the community are hard at work during the COVID-19 pandemic getting these essential projects completed.

Thank you to all of them and to the state Department of Accounting and General Services (DAGS) partners on all neighbor islands who are helping to coordinate this important work.
