Leon Guerrero-Tenorio Administration Providing Additional Direct Relief

Prugråman Salåppe’ Deadline Extended to May 22, 2022

Hagåtña, Guam – Governor Lou Leon Guerrero signed Executive Order No. 2022-12 today to extend the application period for the reactivated Prugråman Salåppe’ Ayudon I Taotao for an additional 30 days. The Department of Administration (DOA) will again begin accepting applications for Prugråman Salåppe’ beginning on April 22, 2022, until May 22, 2022.

“It is my hope that by extending the deadline, this aid will reach the families in our community who need it most and empower them to participate fully in our island’s efforts to recover from the pandemic,” said Governor Leon Guerrero. “In coordination with DOA, we want to reassure our people that we are working to ensure the application process runs smoothly. For example, if you do not have a social security card, DOA will accept government-issued documents, including tax forms and employment verifications, that indicate your social security number.”

“As our community returns to work, and the mobility of our population increases, we are once again faced with the reality of high, fluctuating gas prices,” said Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio. “We continue to encourage our community and working families to take advantage of expanded eligibility requirements under Prugråman Salåppe’. Visit doa.guam.gov and apply today!”

DOA advises that incomplete applications including those missing required documents and identification may result in an unanticipated delay of verification and payment. Prugråman Salåppe’ staff are processing applications as quickly as possible and contacting applicants to address incomplete submissions and further their processing status. For more information on application status, contact DOA at 671-638-3833/34 or pspdocs@doa.guam.gov.
