The Guam Economic Development Authority (GEDA) has announced the launch of its Qualifying Certificate Community Contribution (QCCC) Grant Program.

The program will provide a grant of up to $50,000  to not-for-profit organizations or government of Guam agencies who offer programs  that will benefit the island community.

“GEDA continues to be committed to improving the quality of life of the people of Guam through sustainable economic development,” said GEDA administrator Melanie Mendiola in a release. “This grant program certainly aims to fulfill that goal.”

“Community contributions are funded through QC agreements between the government of Guam and QC beneficiaries,” said Deputy GEDA director Ricky Hernandez in the same release. “The QCCC Grant Program aims to create an objective process toward awarding grant funds,” he said.

Among those businesses with QCs who have to make community contributions are Guam Regional Medical City and the Tsubaki Tower.

The Grant Application Period opened yesterday, November 12. It closes on December 16 at 5 p.m.

GEDA is accepting grant applications online or in-office for projects that must fall within one of the following seven categories: (1) health care, (2) public safety, (3) higher education, (4) cultural preservation, (5) tourist attractions, (6) sports tourism, or (7) economic development.

Interested applicants are encouraged to visit the GEDA website at www.investguam.com/qc-grants or contact our Grant Coordinator at qcgrants@investguam.com.
