BOSTON – The Federal Emergency Management Agency will be sending nearly $3.3 million to the State of Connecticut to reimburse Quinnipiac University for the cost of providing testing to students, faculty and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The $3,282,764 FEMA Public Assistance grant will reimburse the private university in Hamden for the cost of administering approximately 95,856 COVID-19 tests between July 2020 and June 2021.

“FEMA is pleased to be able to assist Quinnipiac University with these costs,” said FEMA Region 1 Regional Administrator Lori Ehrlich. “Providing resources for our institutions of higher education to combat the COVID-19 pandemic is critical to their success, and to our success as a nation.”

FEMA’s Public Assistance program is an essential source of funding for states and communities recovering from a federally declared disaster or emergency.

So far, FEMA has provided more than $630 million in Public Assistance grants to Connecticut to reimburse the state for pandemic-related expenses.
