The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance Program is seeking public feedback, through May 24 , on a draft policy that will establish deadlines and cost-sharing application related to COVID-19.

Earlier this year, FEMA announced that it will 100% support certain COVID-19 costs accrued through July 1 and offer 90% support starting July 2. That means local, state, tribal, or territorial governments and certain nonprofits will continue to be eligible for reimbursement of their costs associated with COVID-19 response and recovery.

The list of work that's eligible for reimbursement includes:

  1. Non-congregate shelter
  2. Emergency medical care
  3. Management, control, and reduction of immediate threats to public health and safety

The new policy will dictate how the cost-sharing will be applied and what programmatic and implementation deadlines will be applied to all COVID-19 emergency and major disaster declarations.

Learn how to provide feedback here.
