FEMA Releases Guidance on Coordinating Public Assistance and Other Sources of Federal Funding

FEMA issued guidance to state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) governments clarifying conditions and scenarios under which FEMA may provide public assistance (PA) program funding and how SLTT governments may coordinate PA with other federal funding sources. Given the need to quickly address the public health threats of COVID-19 and the overlapping authories and funding for the federal response, FEMA may generally provide PA for eligible costs even in instances when SLTT governments may apply for coverage of those costs via other federal agencies.
