Public Sector Capacity Building The RMI Public Sector Capacity Building grant for fiscal year 2005 was for the amount of $103,514. This was used to partially fund the payroll of the Auditor General’s Office.

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: Trade promotion focused on promoting opportunities for Ebeye businesses at the US Army installation on Kwajalein and to increase overall participation of the Ebeye community. The Investment division has worked to educate political leaders about issues related to trade promotion.

• Land Registration: The RMI continued to register land and to convert relevant paper documents into an electronic date base. The shift from traditional land processes to formal land registration in the Pacific is a culture change. However, the RMI is working to educate the public about the benefits of registering land holdings with the government. Two properties were registered this fiscal year, 180 documents were entered into the database, and 79 applications for registration were given out.





• 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 office is the 6-month trade exposition hosted by Japan. Staff work 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 has helped to start eight new small businesses. The SBDC also completed a survey of current business opportunities in the RMI. Finally, the SBDC serves as a third party to help local funding agencies and small businesses work towards agreement.

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 2005, 273 samples have been collected but test results have not been provided.

• Land and Coastal Management: A coastal water specialist was hired by the department this fiscal year. The coastal management plan for Majuro was completed. The RMI is working to finish Coastal Management Plans for the outer islands.

• Biodiversity: Officials began surveying coral reefs in an effort to develop baseline date on the health of the reefs. Once the baseline has been established, performance measures and goals will be developed.

• Solid and Hazardous Waste: A solid waste committee was established by the RMI cabinet to address the current management crisis on Majuro. Multiple agencies with varying roles are responsible for managing solid waste on Majuro.

It is hoped that the committee will help streamline and clarify roles between the agencies and adopt and implement a sustainable solid waste management plan. A draft policy for solid waste was published.

• Education and Awareness: Public education and awareness sessions were conducted with school and community groups, about 10,000 people attended the sessions during the first six months of the fiscal year. EPA also conducted a weekly radio program and disseminates information to the local newspaper to further educate the public about environmental concerns or events.

• Information Management: EPA completed work to develop a website for the agency. The office also implemented an intranet to allow information sharing between employees.

• Planning, Human Resources, Administration: EPA revised its strategic plan and continues to implement changes. Starting this fiscal year, staff, in coordination with the Deputy General Manager, began writing monthly work plans.

Department of the Interior Discretionary Grants The RMI continues to be eligible for the discretionary grant programs of the Office of Insular Affairs (OIA) of the Department of the Interior. 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 2005, the OIA provided a $10,000 operations and maintenance grant for administrative services training.

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 $3.1 million in funding for Ebeye Special Needs for education and health uses in fiscal year 2005. The education sector applied its allocation of $1.6 million to provide basic primary and secondary services to Kwajalein Atoll students. The $1.5 million awarded to the health sector supported the recurring costs of Ebeye Hospital and Kwajalein preventive and primary care services, as well as to cover operational improvements.
