“As the COVID-19 Pandemic continues to threaten the health and safety of people around the world, New York continues to be the model for effectively responding to this crisis and controlling infection levels despite the financial toll it has taken on state and local governments,” said Gov. Andrew Cuomo. “While this funding is a first step in providing local governments with much needed relief, this situation is far from over and I will keep fighting to ensure the federal government is providing real financial support to those who have been on the front lines since Day One.”
As part of FEMA’s Emergency Management Performance Grant program, the COVID-19 Supplemental will provide recipients with funding to cover costs associated with COVID-19-related planning, training, travel, support from consultants or contractors, equipment purchases, and facility construction and maintenance. Funding allocations are derived from a population-based formula and require a 1:1 cost match from each recipient.
