(Tamuning, Guam) The Guam Economic Development Authority (GEDA) will open its application period for the Qualifying Certificate Community Contribution (QCCC) Grant Program Series 5 on November 15th. The program will provide grant funding of up to $25,000 per award to non-profit organizations (NPOs) and Government of Guam departments or agencies toward eligible projects and programs. This grant funding is provided by the Qualifying Certificate Community Contributions from the Guam Regional Medical City.

The grant application period opens November 15, 2021 and closes on December 03, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. An informational briefing on the program will be held on November 08, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. via Zoom. 
GEDA expects to award at least 13 organizations in this competitive grant program. Since the start of the program in November 2019, 78 projects have been awarded totaling One Million Ninety-Three Thousand Five Hundred Twenty-Five dollars ($1,093,525.00). Projects should fall into one of the following five categories: (1) health care, (2) public safety, (3) higher education, (4) cultural preservation, or (5) economic development.

“Since the start of the Leon Guerrero Tenorio Administration, it was a priority to push out as much funding to as many organizations as possible,” said GEDA Administrator/CEO Melanie Mendiola. ”We have received great feedback about the accessibility of the program and its effectiveness in getting local funds through the qualifying certificate community contribution to the organizations that need it the most.”

“We have seen a lot of great work being done through this grant program,” said Governor Leon Guerrero. “Through programs like the QCCC Grant Program, we see that a lot of good can be done when there is cooperation among the private sector, the government, and our local non-profits.”
