Public-Sector Capacity Building The RMI received $103,514 in Compact funds to support the general operations of the Office of the Auditor General. No funds from this allocation were spent.

Private-Sector Development The RMI received an allocation of $361,943 for its private-sector development sector grant. This amount was used to support the following activities: trade and investment promotion, land registration, tourism promotion, and small business development.

• Trade and Investment Promotion: The Trade and Investment Unit focused on conducting trainings for new product developments with virgin coconut oil.

Work also began on a website to display Marshallese product information.

Outreach sessions were held with some of the foreign embassies in Majuro to develop product packaging specialized for target audiences.

• Tourism Promotion: The RMI has worked to reach potential clients through its Japan office which is partly funded with Compact funds. This year, the main focus of this effort was to promote and make arrangements for the start of a direct charter flights from Japan to Majuro. Staff worked to disseminate information about local products, tourism opportunities, and fisheries. Funds were also spent on traditional print advertisement and staff training.

• Small Business Development: The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) continued to conduct training and counsel clients on business development plans.

The SBDC helped to initiate 22 new business loans, totaling more than $95,000, which created 48 new jobs and retained nine current jobs. The SBDC also conducted 217 business counseling sessions, 21 training courses which 1,344 people attended.

Environment The RMI received an allocation of $404,720 for its environment sector grant. This amount was used to support the following activities under the RMI Environmental

Protection Agency (EPA):

• Environmental Health and Water Quality: The RMI continued to collect and test water samples. In 2004, only 23 percent of the samples collected were deemed safe for drinking. In 2006, 620 samples were collected, with 37 percent deemed to be safe.

• Land and Coastal Management: The department continues to issue earthmoving permits and held public hearings for development permit requests. Work continues on coastal management plan development for out island communities.

• Biodiversity: In coordination with outside agencies, training was provided on invasive species management, conservation area development, and native species preservation.

• Solid and Hazardous Waste: Solid waste management continues to be problematic in Majuro. Several agencies with varying roles are responsible for managing solid waste on Majuro. A draft policy for solid waste management was published in fiscal year 2005; little to no action has come from the draft.

• Education and Awareness: Twenty-eight public education and awareness sessions were conducted with school and community groups. EPA implemented new environment curriculum in the schools and added 261 new publications to its library.

Department of the Interior Discretionary Grants The RMI continues to be eligible for the discretionary grant programs of the Office of Insular Affairs (OIA). Although the amended Compact provides significant operational support in health and education and provides funds for capacity building, the government still has special short-term needs that can be effectively addressed by OIA’s programs.

In fiscal year 2006, the OIA provided $88,500 in Operations and Maintenance grant funding, $50,000 for the Coral Reef Initiative, and $735,053 from the Technical Assistance program. Technical assistance funding included $390,000 to assist in the RMI fiber optic cable project.

Ebeye Special Needs

In order to advance the objectives and specific priorities of the community at Ebeye and other Marshallese communities within Kwajalein Atoll, grant assistance is made available on an annual basis to improve the infrastructure and delivery of services and develop the human and material resources necessary for the RMI to maintain such infrastructure and deliver such services.

The RMI received $3,185,560 for Ebeye Special Needs for education and health uses in fiscal year 2006. The education sector applied its allocation of $1.1 million to provide basic primary and secondary services to Kwajalein Atoll students ($1 million) and to support the Scholarship Board ($100,000). The $1,085,560 awarded to the health sector supported the recurring costs of Ebeye Hospital and Kwajalein preventive and primary care services, as well as covered operational improvements. Lastly, the RMI directed $1 million to fund education and health infrastructure improvements.
