GRANT FROM ANA

Congressman Eni Faleomavaega announced today that he recently was advised by the Administration for Native Americans (ANA) office of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that it has awarded $345,980 to the U'una'i Legal Services in American Samoa.

The grant represents the second year funding of a three-year grant period that began in June 2000 and ends in May 2003.

Information obtained from ANA indicate that the U'una'i Legal Services will use the funds to further its goal of providing a direct legal services program with a broad range of civil legal assistance to low income individuals in American Samoa.

"I have no doubt that many of our people qualify to receive the professional services of U'una'i Legal Services and I hope they will take full advantage of it," Congressman Faleomavaega said.

"I congratulate attorney Virginia Sudbury and her staff for operating a successful program."
