Guam- Over $30 million in grants is going to the Guam State Clearinghouse as part of the agency’s efforts to find more money for Guam.

With Lt. Governor Ray Tenorio and his team present, Administrator Eric Palacios spoke at the Rotary Club of Northern Guam luncheon about the role the clearinghouse plays in the local government. He says they will continue to inform the public of the grants that they have applied for two reasons.

“We like to keep the community informed of what’s going on” said Palacios. “And number 2, we hope that by doing that, we can get input whether positive or negative from the community which these funds are supposed to help.”

The Guam State Clearinghouse has already had 2 large scale meetings with government and non governmental entities about the federal grant process. Palacios adds they will be planning more in the near future.
