Guam - Guam State Clearinghouse Administrator Roland Villaverde says he is anticipating millions of dollars more in grant money for Guam in the coming months. He was the guest speaker at this week's Rotary Club of Northern Guam meeting, where he presented the functions that his office provides for the island.

Villaverde says he is working to obtain more stimulus funds possibly to go towards the more than $100 million needed for upgrades at the Port Authority of Guam.  "We're hoping to move forward and see what other opportunities are available despite being denied the additional funding amount from the U.S. Department of Transportation," he said.

Villaverde is hopeful Guam will secure the funds for the Port in several months.
