Gov. Neil Abercrombie on Friday released $91.9 million in Capital Improvement Projects (CIPs) across the state with the goal of stimulating the local economy and generating jobs.
The CIP release announcement comes on the heels of Thursday’s jobs numbers showing Hawaii with its lowest unemployment rate (5.7 percent) since 2008.
Here are just a few highlights from the (very long) list:
- $10 million for infrastructure improvements at Hawaii schools
- $10 million for Americans With Disabilities Act compliance at state and federal housing projects on several islands
- $5.6 million for improvements and renovations at Mayor Wright Homes
- $12.5 million to design and build the UH Pacific Health Research Lab in Kalaeloa in West Oahu
- $10 million for new buildings to support the Kapiolani Community College’s Culinary Institute of the Pacific.
- $750,000 to install a photovoltaic system for the state-owned warehouse where Hawaii Livestock Slaughterhouse operates
