“Whether it was providing rental aid, unemployment assistance, or business relief, our administration has been committed to carrying our community through this crisis,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “As more homeowners are relieved from financial hardship, we know there is more work to be done on our road to recovery. We will continue demonstrating our dedication to uplifting Guam’s families and delivering relief, so our people can rise and thrive.”
“Under the Leon Guerrero-Tenorio Administration, our service agencies have worked hard to stand up public assistance and relief programs from scratch to ensure the people of Guam and their properties are protected,” said Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio. “If you applied for HAF and have been notified of your pre-qualification, we encourage you to submit all supporting documents by Friday, March 25, 2022, to move further along the process and receive relief in the upcoming batches.”
