Earlier this year, the Federal Emergency Management Agency announced that the incident period for public assistance funding for eligible COVID-19-related work and reimbursable costs will close when the COVID-19 national and public health emergencies end on May 11.   

In updated guidance, the agency recognizes that costs may be incurred for demobilization, disposition, and disposal activities after the May 11 deadline and is providing a limited 90-day extension (Aug. 9, 2023) to complete these activities.
