The Hawaii Tourism Authority has awarded more than $1.4 million to help fund 120 events and projects statewide.

HTA President and CEO Mike McCartney says the state’s agency for tourism remains committed to supporting programs that enhance and diversify Hawaii’s tourism product.
He says the community-based events, experiences and projects that were selected for the HTA’s Product Enrichment Program represent and preserve the unique culture and diversity of the islands.
The Chinese Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii’s Narcissus Festival in Honolulu is receiving money. Other events include the Big Island Farm Bureau’s Western Week Festival and the Kauai Concert Association’s Red Clay Jazz Festival.
