Extra $1.6M comes from Discretionary Compact Impact Assistance
Over $1.6M in Discretionary Compact Impact Assistance funding was recently awarded by the U.S. Department of the Interior, to the government of Guam. Governor Calvo applied for this money for public education.
He has requested the funds go to the Guam Department of Education. This will ease one third of the budgeting gap from the projection shortfall in the Territorial Education Facilities Fund.
