Release Number: 
HQ-20-153

WASHINGTON  -- Today, President Trump announced his intent to extend the Title 32 orders through mid-August. The President’s current authority provides governors continued command of their National Guard forces, while being 100% federally funded under Title 32, enabling these states to use the additional resources to meet the missions necessary in the whole-of-America COVID-19 response.  Each state’s National Guard is still under the authority of the Governor and is working in concert with the Department of Defense.  In the days ahead, FEMA will work with the Department of Defense and the states to extend validated mission assignments to carry out the President’s direction.
