REGION 1 – The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has awarded $1,256,800 to the New Hampshire Department of Safety for creating and maintaining an alternate care site at Langley Hall on the campus of NHTI – Concord’s Community College.
If the alternate care site had opened, it could have been an extension of the Capital Area Public Health Network, Concord Hospital, Franklin Regional Hospital or Lakes Region General Hospital.
It would then have provided space for those who didn’t need acute care so the hospitals could preserve their capacities for patients who required a higher level of care.
The hall was modified and disinfected. Funds for that are included in this FEMA Public Assistance (PA) Program grant. The federal government is reimbursing New Hampshire at 100% of the state’s costs.
“FEMA is pleased to provide funding that helps New Hampshire manage the financial demands it is experiencing,” said Acting Regional Administrator and Federal Coordinating Officer Paul Ford, who oversees FEMA’s operations in New England. “We continue to work closely with the state in our shared efforts.”
Additional information about the FEMA PA Program for states, localities, Tribes and certain types of private nonprofit organizations throughout New England can be found at Assistance for Governments and Private Non-Profits After a Disaster.
FEMA’s mission is helping people before, during, and after disasters.
