Advisory Council Role

The Kaulunani Council acts in an advisory capacity to the State Forester and Smart Trees Pacific, which manages the program on behalf of the State. The Council provides guidance and direction for the Kaulunani program including reviewing the Forest Action Plan and any other documents related to the program for which the Council advice is required. It reviews and recommends for approval projects, subgrants, and educational and marketing initiatives. It also reviews and consults on the annual Federal Program grant proposal, as well as other Federal or non federal funding opportunities as requested.
