The Federal Emergency Management Agency yesterday announced additional assistance under its public assistance program for eligible costs to safely reopen and operate certain private nonprofits in response to the COVID-19 emergency, including private nonprofit medical facilities.

Authorized by President Biden in January, the interim policy provides 100% federal funding for eligible costs and work conducted Jan. 21 through Sept. 30, 2021, including certain personal protective equipment, cleaning and disinfection, COVID-19 diagnostic testing, screening and temperature scanning, and temporary physical barriers for social distancing.
