The purpose of this memorandum is to issue the attached FEMA Policy FP 104-009-19, Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic: Work Eligible for Public Assistance (Interim). On March 13, 2020, the President of the United States declared a nationwide emergency for the COVID-19 pandemic.
FEMA is releasing this interim policy to define the framework, policy details, and requirements for determining the eligibility of work and costs under the Public Assistance Program across all
COVID-19 emergency and major disaster declarations. Except where specifically stated otherwise in this policy, assistance is subject to PA Program requirements as defined in Version 3.1 of the Public Assistance Program and Policy Guide.
This policy applies to work performed on or after September 15, 2020. As such, this interim policy supersedes the FEMA Fact Sheet dated March 19, 2020: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic: Eligible Emergency Protective Measures, for work performed on or after September 15, 2020.
