REGION 1 – Vermont will receive $ 104,438,131 from FEMA to support the State with emergency protective measures to store, handle, transport, distribute, and administer the COVID-19 vaccine in accordance with their Vaccination Plan. These funds are being awarded to support the Vermont Agency of Human Services in order to address this immediate threat to life and public safety.

The grant supported a total of 13 vaccination centers across the state from Jan. 21 to April 21. Along with the emergency protective measures eligible costs included, but are not limited to personal protective equipment, medical and support staff, emergency medical care and supplies, and dissemination of information to the public.

The funding is awarded at 100% federal cost share through FEMA’s Public Assistance Grant Program which reimburses communities for actions taken in the immediate response and recovery activities during a disaster.

“Through FEMA’s partnership, this critical funding will assist the State in ensuring they have the necessary funds to carry out their vaccination plan.” said Acting Regional Administrator and Federal Coordinating Officer Paul Ford, who oversees FEMA’s operations in New England. FEMA’s Public Assistance Grant Program is essential to keeping communities safe while responding to the COVID-19 pandemic throughout New England.

As of April 15, FEMA’s PA program has obligated more than $213 million to Vermont for its pandemic response.
