Guam - This evening the Farmers Co-Op is holding a special meeting on how to access more federal funds. According to board secretary Hope Cristobal, the Farmers Co-Op board hopes to hear from University of Guam advisor Robert Barber on his meeting with U.S. Economic Development Authority administrator Gail Fujita.
The meeting takes place a month after the Guam Economic Development Authority's board of directors approved MegaUnited Corporation the contract award for the construction of the Farmers Co-Op facility co-located with the Dededo Flea Market. The contract award is worth $3 million.
Cristobal however believes the $3 million is not enough and hopes to discuss with the board how to access more federal funds to augment the facility before the USEDA funding application deadline of March 14.
