FEMA COVID-19 Funding
FEMA Public Assistance (PA) grant funding is still available to local governments and certain types of private non-profits so that communities can continue responding to the COVID-19 disaster. ACT NOW! FEMA will pay 100 percent federal funding for the costs of response activities that have been determined eligible by FEMA until September 30, 2021.
This means that all work eligible under FEMA’s existing COVID-19 policies, like administering vaccines, COVID-19 testing, increasing medical capacity, the provision of personal protective equipment, non-congregate sheltering, and emergency feeding and food distribution will be reimbursed at 100 percent federal share. Important policies about these costs are attached to this email.
FEMA is utilizing the FEMA Grants Portal system to process streamline project applications, where applicants can submit PA project request and supporting documentation like payroll, timesheets, contracts and invoices.
Please reach out to your TDEM District Coordinator or TDEM Recovery Coordinator if you have any questions about FEMA project applications for COVID-19. TDEM staff is available to assist in processing your projects.
