DENVER – FEMA has provided more than $3.4 million in additional Public Assistance funding for the COVID-19 response in North Dakota. The assistance was made available under a major disaster declaration issued April 1, 2020. FEMA has provided a total of almost $100.9 Million for the North Dakota COVID-19 response to date.

The $3.4 million was approved for the North Dakota Department of Health for emergency protective measures.  The funds were used to rent a warehouse with two temperature-controlled containers to store supplies, equipment, temperature sensitive vaccines, and testing materials.  They purchased and distributed medical supplies, vaccination fliers, and personal protective equipment for public health-related activities statewide.

This funding is authorized under Section 403 of the Robert T. Stafford Act.

For the COVID-19 response, FEMA has simplified the Public Assistance application and funding process to address the magnitude of this event and to allow local officials to receive eligible funding more quickly. These reimbursements play a critical role as state, local and tribal officials work tirelessly to assist their communities during this response.
