FEMA Public Assistance Program

FEMA's Public Assistance (PA) grant program provides federal assistance to government organizations and certain private nonprofit (PNP) organizations following a Presidential disaster declaration. This program is to reimburse eligible entities for emergency expenditures related to the COVID-19 emergency.

It is highly recommended that organizations interested in public assistance file the Request for Public Assistance forms as soon as possible to confirm they are eligible and to open their file with FEMA. The reimbursement requests (projects) can be turned in at a later time if the $3,300 threshold hasn’t been met yet.

ELIGIBILITY:  The following types of organizations may be eligible for PA Category B funding:

  • State government – departments, agencies, boards, commissions, authorities, universities
  • Local government – counties, townships, township road districts, cities, villages, school districts, levee/drainage districts, community college districts, special districts
  • Private non-profit organizations – examples: utility cooperatives, hospitals, schools, churches, clinics, child care, shelters, food assistance programs, rehabilitation, custodial care
  • Native American tribes and tribal organizations

MINIMUM PROJECT (REIMBURSEMENT) AMOUNT: If an eligible organization has at least $3,300 in eligible Category B – Emergency Protective Measure -- costs, the organization should submit a FEMA Request for Public Assistance (RPA) form.

Additional information about eligibility, types of expenses covered, and how to file the Request for Public Assistance can be found at: http://www.kansastag.gov/KDEM.asp?PageID=166

Small Business Administration (SBA):

Governor Laura Kelly announced March 21st, 2020 that the U.S. Small Business Administration approved her request to make loans of up to $2 million available to small businesses disrupted by coronavirus. The disaster declaration extends to all 105 Kansas counties, making low-interest federal disaster loans for working capital available for Kansas small businesses suffering substantial economic injury. SBA loans may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills because of the disaster’s impact. Eligibility for Economic Injury Disaster Loans is based on the financial impact of the novel Coronavirus, COVID-19. The interest rate is 3.75 percent for small businesses and 2.75 percent for private non-profit organizations.

The loans are based on a business’ monthly capital needs or six months.  Some details:

  • Up to $2 million. 
  • Apply directly to SBA.
  • Minimum 3 week turnaround.
  • Current lenders may modify & restructure existing loans.
  • Bridge loans with current lenders may be rolled into economic injury loans, so immediate liquidity can be obtained from a local lender and then converted into the SBA loan.
