$140 Million in new relief funding for Guam Schools

The U.S. Department of Education is announcing an additional $110,563,287 to Guam to help safely reopen schools, measure and effectively address significant learning loss, and take other actions to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on the students and families who depend on K-12 schools in Guam. 

An additional $33,284,456 is intended to help Guam mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on the students and families who depend on our K-12 schools, institutions of higher education, and other education-related organizations.

"These critical federal resources which comprise nearly 50% of the entire local appropriation for education will markedly improve our readiness for students, faculty, staff, and administrators to restart face-to-face learning and work to fill any gaps in virtual learning," stated Congressman San Nicolas. "It is a blessing to be able to be a part of ensuring the necessary resources are federally secured for Guam to keep our learning environments safe and effective for our children," Congressman San Nicolas concludes.
