GEDA launches Qualifying Certificate Community Contribution grant program

191

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

“Like small businesses, non-profit organizations have also suffered as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many non-profits continue to offer services while their operating budgets may be fragile due to less donor support and other income streams slowing down.” stated Melanie Mendiola, CEO/Administrator. “GEDA continues to be committed to improving the quality of life of the people of Guam through sustainable economic opportunities.”

The grant application period opens August 06, 2020, and closes on August 28, 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 categories: (1) health care, (2) public safety, (3) higher education, (4) cultural preservation, (5) tourist attractions, (6) sports tourism, or (7) economic development.

For more information on the QC Community Contribution Grant Program, interested applicants are encouraged to visit the GEDA website at www.investguam.com/qc-grants or contact our Grant Coordinator at qcgrants@investguam.com.
