GEDA extends Qualifying Certificate community contribution grant program application deadline


As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Guam Economic Development Authority (GEDA) has announced the extension of its Qualifying Certificate Community Contribution (QCCC) Grant Program deadline for applications that was originally due on August 28, 2020.

The QCCC grant program aims to provide grant funding up to $10,000 per award to non-profit organizations (NPOs) toward eligible projects and programs that will benefit our island community. This grant funding is provided by Guam Regional Medical City and TNN Guam dba Tsubaki Hotel.

“Due to the PCOR1 stay-at-home Executive Order, we will be extending the deadline for our QCCC grant program to provide additional time for applicants as they work through any operational challenges arising from COVID-19,” stated Melanie Mendiola, CEO/Administrator. “The deadline extension will ensure that NPOs are given time to obtain the requirements necessary to apply for the QCCC grant.”

The deadline for QCCC grant applications has been extended to September 11, 2020, at 5:00 pm.

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