VILLAGE COMMUNITY CARE PROGRAM
Since the April 2022 launch of Prugråman Pinilian, we have been able to provide stability and support for the childcare care industry by providing more Guam families with ﬁnancial support for childcare as well as assist childcare facilities and funding programs through employers, non-proﬁt organizations, after school care programs, community care, relative care, and apprenticeship programs.
We recognize that our village mayors also have an important role in providing essential childcare services and programs for childcare before and after school, during holidays and summer. This program will provide funds that will allow our village Mayors to upgrade and/or repair existing facilities used by the children of the village as well as allow them to provide additional playground areas, purchase supplies to maintain the upkeep of these facilities as well as assist with care for our working families.
