The Federal Emergency Management Agency on Sept. 1 released its interim policy, “FEMA Policy 104-009-19 COVID 19 Pandemic: Work Eligible for Public Assistance.” The interim policy defines the framework, policy details, and requirements for determining the eligibility of work and costs under the Public Assistance Program to ensure consistent and appropriate implementation across all COVID-19 emergency and major disaster declarations. Except where specifically stated otherwise in this policy and other disaster-specific COVID-19 policies, assistance is subject to Public Assistance Program requirements as defined in Version 3.1 of the Public Assistance Program and Policy Guide (PAPPG). This interim policy supersedes the FEMA Fact Sheet dated Mar. 19, 2020, “Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic: Eligible Emergency Protective Measures,” for work performed on or after Sept. 15, 2020. This interim policy will be updated or revised as required by changes in the status of the COVID-19 pandemic.
