Guam - Nearly $83 million is now available for Guam under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The funds lay the foundation for a generation of education reform and will help save teaching jobs at risk of state and local budget cuts.  U. S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan stated, "The $83 million Guam will receive today is part of the single largest boost in education funding in recent history."

Additionally, Guam has received $94.2 million in education stimulus funds, nearly $5 million in Pell Grant funding for students attending schools on Guam, and $92,000 in work study funding. Guam will also be eligible to apply for another $25 million in ARRA funding this fall.
