Eligibility for FEMA COVID-19 Public Assistance Ends May 11

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) updated eligibility and programmatic deadlines for all COVID-19 emergency and major disaster declarations. Costs incurred after the public health emergency ends May 11 will not be eligible for funding under the COVID-19 Public Assistance Program. However, FEMA issued guidance recognizing costs may be incurred for demobilization, disposition and disposal activities related to eligible COVID-19 emergency work and FEMA has approved an extension to these eligible activities until Aug. 9, 2023.
