|Congressman 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 ending 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.”
