0

The state of Texas will be federally reimbursed for the costs of mobilizing National Guard soldiers for assisting counties and communities in their efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

McAllen Congressman Vicente Gonzalez says the Biden administration has directed FEMA to reimburse states for emergency costs related to the pandemic going back to January of last year. Those costs include personal protective equipment and sheltering at-risk populations, and the use of the National Guard to help with coronavirus testing and food bank food drives.

The administration’s directive also expands the kinds of activities eligible for FEMA reimbursements this year, including costs to operate transit systems, and to safely open and operate schools, child care centers, and domestic violence shelters.
