Federal Grants

According to the Offices of the U.S. and V.I. Inspector General, it is no secret that the Government of the Virgin Islands has over a period of decades, lost hundreds of millions of dollars from federal grants by not applying or not maintaining compliance. This return, reduction and replacement of many of the grants we would have been to be able to utilize, has put a significant burden on the general fund.

I will put in place a staffer to coordinate the research and development of various grant programs that will benefit and support the Virgin Islands. This staffer will also be tasked with coordinating and assisting V.I. non-profit, educational and community based organizations to find and apply for various grants.
