Last week, the Biden Administration clarified that FEMA will be "retroactively reimbursing states fully for the FEMA-eligible services – including masks, gloves, emergency feeding actions, sheltering at risk populations and mobilization of the National Guard - back dated to the beginning of the pandemic in January 2020."
The revised memorandum states that FEMA shall provide a 100 percent Federal cost share for all work eligible for assistance under Public Assistance Category B, pursuant to sections 403 (42 U.S.C. 5170b), 502 (42 U.S.C. 5192), and 503 (42 U.S.C. 5193) of the Stafford Act performed from January 20, 2020, through January 20, 2021. Cities and towns should contact the Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) and the Region 3 FEMA Office for more information on ensuring full reimbursement of the cost share adjustment. Thanks to the National League of Cities and the other "Big 7" state and local government advocacy organizations for their work on this issue.
