Won Pat introduces bill to create homes for homeless

Posted: Updated:

A new bill has been introduced aimed at lifting hundreds of people out of homelessness. Speaker Judi Won Pat's Bill 397 authorizes the Guam Housing Corporation to establish a pilot housing first program from escheated funds. Won Pat says this bill is "just the beginning of a conscious move toward modern, efficient and cost-effective housing solutions."

The bill was introduced in honor of the late Martin Benavente's vision of innovative housing solutions for homelessness. Benavente was the president of the Guam Housing Corporation and passed away in June.
