FEMA provides Utah more money for COVID-19 reimbursements
PROVO, Utah — Utah has received another $1.1 million from FEMA to reimburse the state for costs incurred during the COVID-19 pandemic. The state has received $381 million since April 4, 2020. The current reimbursement are for costs accrued between March of 2020 and May of 2022.
The money is earmarked for Utah County to reimburse it for the previous use of shelter and other needs for emergency workers. In part, the money will cover meals, transportation and other services.
When COVID-19 was declared a national emergency, FEMA provided the country with money to aid those who needed it. FEMA, or Federal Emergency Management Association, supports citizens and emergency workers during emergencies.
The CARES act more than doubled FEMAs available funds to aid in relief of COVID-19, according to the FEMA website. The CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) was enacted in March of 2020.
FEMA has announced that eligibility for COVID-19 reimbursement and work costs will end on May 11, 2023.
