FEMA has established May 11, 2023 as the COVID-19 emergency work completion deadline for public assistance based on the COVID-19 national emergency and major disaster declarations. FEMA’s deadline to identify and submit eligible emergency expenditures performed through July 1, 2022 was previously December 31, 2022. In addition, COVID-19 related expenditures from July 2, 2022 through May 11, 2023 are eligible under the COVID-19 Public Assistance Program at a 90% cost share.
FEMA recognizes that costs may be incurred for demobilization, disposition, and disposal of equipment and supplies after the completion of eligible emergency work. So, its policy memo outlined the approved extension to the emergency work period of performance only for these activities, for a period not to exceed 90 days from the end of the emergency work completion deadline. FEMA will provide additional guidance for any further extensions solely for demobilization, disposition, and disposal purposes. These activities also are eligible at a 90% cost share.
