HONOLULU (AP) - The US Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded Kapiolani Community College $800,000.

HUD said Thursday that the school intends to use its Alaska Native/Native Hawaiian Institutions Assisting Communities grant to renovate and connect culinary and continuing education classrooms.

The department says the result will be the creation of the Kapahulu Learning and Outreach Center. Plans call for the center to be energy efficient and environmentally friendly.

HUD says such grants aren't intended to directly benefit schools, but will help them undertake a wide variety of activities, particularly those that benefit low-income people.
