Today, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand announced $35,198,187.69 in federal funding to reimburse health care systems and facilities in New York State for costs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding was allocated through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and will be used to reimburse recipients for the cost of emergency protective measures during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, including temporary staffing, COVID-19 testing, and medical equipment.
“The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are still being felt across New York State, placing an especially heavy burden on health care providers,” said Senator Gillibrand. “These critical federal funds will reimburse several health care providers for the cost of these emergency protective measures that helped minimize the threat to the health and safety of the general public. I’m proud to deliver this important funding and will continue to fight to keep our communities safe.”
