GCC awarded $1.95M to weatherize building

by Krystal Paco

Guam - The Guam Community College receives $1.95 million in U.S. Department of Homeland Security FEMA grants to retrofit building 200 to better withstand tropical storms and typhoons.

In a media release from Congresswoman Madeleine Z. Bordallo's office, she states the value of preventing and minimizing damage to valuable property, especially schools, as typhoons can cause millions of dollars in damage, depending on the severity of the storm.

Building 200 houses GCC's Growing Education Department. The funds will help to transform a single-story butler building into a two-story concrete structure as well as provide additional 1,500 square feet for classrooms and labs.
