FEMA Public Assistance Grant for Hospitals

FEMA Public Assistance (PA) is a grant that offers supplemental financial assistance to State, Local Governments, and certain private not-for-profit organizations for response and recovery activities required as a result of a federally declared disaster, which in this case is COVID-19. Private not-for-profit hospitals can use the monies made available through PA to fund staffing contracts, per diem and travel costs related to the contract, and overtime for budgeted employees in hopes of relieving some of the burden from the hospitals. This video presents a general outline of the program, potential applicants, categories of work, project development, and answers to common questions about the program.
