The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Deanne Criswell joined the National Governors Association call with the White House COVID-19 team to discuss the latest 100% COVID-19 federal cost share extension. The extension will be for an additional three months from April 1 to July 1, 2022.
FEMA will also continue to provide 100% of the federal funding for National Guard activities to combat and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. National Guard activities under Title 32 remain under the command and control of their respective governors but is funded by the Department of Defense (DoD). FEMA has mission assigned DoD to fund Title 32 National Guard deployments to support state and territorial efforts in response to the pandemic.
Following July 1, the federal cost share will shift to 90%, rather than the statutory minimum 75% federal cost.
