Restrictions on allocating public funds:
 According to University policy, SAPFB “will not disburse any funds from RIO
funding programs that are intended to actually benefit a sectarian program or
activity of an RIO.” (Memorandum of Agreement between Albert Simone,
President of the University of Hawai’i; Warren Price III, State Attorney General;
Kirk Cashmere, ACLU Hawai’i staff attorney; May 1989). To comply with the
provisions of the Memorandum of Agreement, SAPFB shall apply the 3-prong
Lemon test (Lemon v. Kurtzman 403 U.S. 602).
Does the program have a valid purpose?
Does the primary effect of the program advance religion?
Will the program create an excessive entanglement of church and state?
When reviewing an application, line “a” should be determined as being true, and
lines “b” and “c” as being false, in order for the application to be considered for
approval. If the appropriation fails to meet any portion of the test as determined by
the SAPFB board, until circumstances warrant otherwise, that particular program
shall not be eligible for funding.
