$870K for Guam coastal management

WASHINGTON, D.C.-The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has awarded $870,000 in federal financial assistance to the Guam Department of Administration.

This formula grant will be used to help the department administer the Guam Coastal Management Program, which guides the use, protection and development of land and ocean resources within Guam’s coastal zone.

The grant also will support new initiatives such as the development of legislation to finance natural resource management on Guam; planning for unique “Village Centers” in north and central Guam; and enhanced public access to coastal and marine resources. The award funds a large range of outreach projects, community engagement and volunteer programs to support responsible resource use, conservation actions in local watersheds and sustainable development of the island.

“I appreciate NOAA’s continued support of Guam’s efforts to protect our coastal areas, and I look forward to seeing these funds benefit our island,” said Delegate Madeleine Z. Bordallo (D-GU) yesterday.
