Dear Potential Applicant:
On March 20, 2020, the State of New York received a Major Disaster Declaration FEMA-4480-DR from President Trump for the COVID-19 Incident. The incident started on January 20, 2020, and is ongoing. Unlike previous public assistance pursuits, there is no need for a preliminary damage assessment (PDA) and there is no 30 day deadline for the application (it is on-going for now).
The declaration authorizes public assistance for Category B Emergency Protective Measures.
On March 26, 2020 we will begin holding applicant briefings for Region 1 – Nassau and Suffolk Counties via WebEx. The Applicants Briefs provide eligible applicants with the information needed to: (a) participate in the disaster as Public Assistance applicants; and, (b) submit for reimbursement for FEMA-eligible expenditures incurred as a result of the COVID-19 virus.
To register for one of the applicant briefings, please click on the registration link next to your preferred date and time. Once you register for the applicant briefing, you will receive a confirmation with the teleconference login as well as the WebEx login. You will also receive a confirmation email with this information. The duration of the WebEx should be approximately 1 hour.
