Treasury Guidance

Please find this guidance that Treasury will continually be updating to help State and Local Governments navigate the CRF as you help encourage this dialogue.

 

Unemployment Assistance

  • To ensure states can administer their UI programs effectively and efficiently, the Department of Labor is providing additional guidance by responding to states with information on applicable reporting requirements for emergency administrative grants; reminding states about modifications the CARES Act made to emergency administrative grants; and sharing answers to commonly asked questions about UI.
  • States and territories awarded DWGs may fund disaster-relief employment contact tracing activities related to the coronavirus if the purpose of the tracing is in response to and in order to mitigate the public health emergency. Because contact tracing is an allowable cost of Disaster DWG funds, the department encourages states to expend these funds on activities that involve identifying and notifying individuals who may have been exposed to the coronavirus to slow or stop the spread of the virus. If tracing is conducted thoroughly and properly, it can be an effective tool to quarantine and isolate potential cases of the virus and may contribute to its containment.
  • As of May 1, 2020, the department has awarded $161 million in coronavirus DWG funding to 31 states and territories. These DWGs are funded under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act to prevent, prepare for and respond to coronavirus. Within 60 days of disaster DWG awards, grantees must submit a full application including a budget, implementation plan, and other planning documents for the Department’s approval.

FEMA

  • For our seniors, FEMA is coordinating two shipments totaling a 14-day supply of personal protective equipment to all 15,400 Medicaid and Medicare-certified nursing homes. The shipments are meant to supplement existing efforts to provide equipment to nursing homes.
  • On May 4, FEMA announced $200 million in supplemental funding from the CARES act for grants through its Emergency Food and Shelter Program.

o   Combined with the $120 million in annual funding appropriated by Congress, a total of $320 million will be distributed beginning in early June to human service organizations assisting those in need throughout the country.

o   These funds will be allocated to local jurisdictions across the country to supplement organizations dedicated to feeding, sheltering, and providing critical resources to people experiencing, or at-risk of experiencing, hunger and homelessness.

 

The White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs (WH IGA) will continue to share pertinent information as it becomes available. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our office directly if we can be of assistance. As a reminder, WH IGA is the primary liaison between the White House and the country’s State and local elected officials and Tribal Governments.  Thank you for your partnership.
