Grant Funding Available to Non-profits, Public Sector for Community Projects
Hagåtña, Guam – The Leon Guerrero-Tenorio Administration announces the opening of the Qualifying Certificate Community Contribution (QCCC) Grant Program Series 6 application period from June 1, 2022, to 5:00 p.m. on July 1, 2022. The Guam Economic Development Authority (GEDA) administers the program with grant funding provided by Qualifying Certificate Community Contributions from the Guam Regional Medical City.
“From the renovation of village sports facilities and creation of inspiring murals, to the enhancement of mental health resources and progress in farm-to-table initiatives, QCCC grants empower change agents in our island to foster community-focused projects,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “We have seen that a lot can be accomplished when our private sector partners, public agencies and departments, and local non-profits work together for the good of Guam.”
“This program provides up to $25,000 to non-profits and public entities for eligible projects in the areas of health care, public safety, economic development, higher education, and cultural preservation,” said Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio. “To date, GEDA has distributed $1,537,683.88 to 91 entities that have utilized the funding to bring their impactful visions to life in our villages. We encourage our community partners to reach out for this grant opportunity and apply today!”
“Since the start of the Leon Guerrero-Tenorio Administration, it was a priority to push out as much funding to as many organizations as possible,” said GEDA Administrator/CEO Melanie Mendiola. “We have received great feedback about the accessibility of the program and its effectiveness in getting local funds to the organizations that need it the most.”
