FEMA Releases Fact Sheet About Reimbursement for Public Vaccination Campaigns

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will reimburse state and local jurisdictions for public COVID-19 vaccination campaigns through its Public Assistance program. FEMA recently released a fact sheet discussing eligible expenses

The fact sheet highlights that eligible activities include community engagement and information dissemination to promote vaccination, availability, and scheduling, such as  

  • Advertising, in-person community engagement activities, and outreach to private sector companies and community organizations to support vaccination efforts. 

  • Call centers or websites with information on how, where, and why to get vaccinated. 

  • Costs associated with ensuring that communications are accessible and effective for the whole community, including individuals with limited English proficiency, disabilities or other access and functional needs. 

  • Transportation expenses to ensure outreach to remote areas and underserved populations and transportation to vaccine administration sites. 

Funding under FEMA’s Public Assistance program is available to state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, and eligible private and non-profit medical facilities carrying out vaccination administration activities.
