Schumer, Gillibrand Announce Over $22.5 Million In Emergency Federal Funding For Coronavirus Testing In New York City

Funding Will Expand Capacity for Testing During the COVID-19 Health Crisis

U.S. Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer and U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand today announced $22,875,973 in federal funding to help health centers in New York City respond to and contain the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak. Specifically, this funding will help health centers purchase, administer, and expand the use of COVID-19 testing. The funding was allocated by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) through the Expanding Capacity for Coronavirus Testing (ECT) program.  

“Testing is imperative to our COVID-19 response and to the safe and successful reopening of New York’s businesses, schools, sporting events, and so much more,” said Senator Schumer. “This federal funding increases testing capacity in our state, will help beat back COVID-19, and contain a possible resurgence of the virus. I am proud to have secured this vital funding for New York and will continue to fight tooth and nail for a fully-funded testing strategy that keeps New Yorkers safe.” 

“To contain the spread of this disease and safely reopen schools and businesses, we must make COVID-19 testing widely available for all Americans,” said Senator Gillibrand“Our state has faced more cases of COVID-19 than any other state and this critical funding will make testing and treatment more accessible in New York City. As we fight to flatten the curve, I will continue to advocate for the resources needed during this pandemic.”
