Kioa Development Fund

The Kioa Island Development Fund was established in 1999 through Cabinet Decision No. 330 of 1998 with a provision of $20,000.

It was allocated for development projects to improve living standards of the 800-member Kioa Island Community and encourage self-reliance and sustainable development.

This fund was increased to $50,000 in 2009 on request from Kioa Island Council.  The increase has also paved way for the provision of $15,000 as the Council’s operational grant and $35,000 for development projects.

The people of Kioa are administered by Kioa Island Council and they are governed directly by the laws of Fiji.
