FEMA Public Assistance for Non-Profit Service Providers 
Kentucky Housing Corporation's (KHC) partnering agencies may be eligible for reimbursement for COVID-19 related expenses from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) via Kentucky Emergency Management (KyEM). As a result of Federal Emergency Declarations, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, local government entities, and certain private non-profit (PNP) organizations are now eligible to apply for the FEMA Public Assistance Grant Program (PA). Specifically, funding for PA Category B (emergency protective measures) can be provided on a reimbursement basis for all areas in Kentucky impacted by COVID-19. This funding can reimburse expenses related to COVID-19 response incurred since January 20, 2020, and continuing until the end of the emergency.  

KHC has created guidance for non-profit partners that can be found on the HCA Help Desk under the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) header found under Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information section at the top of the page. The HCA Help Desk also contains the FEMA Request for Public Assistance form that non-profits must submit by Sunday, April 12, 2020, to their County Emergency Manager and KyEM at's Public Assistance Program and Policy Guide is also available for reference on the HCA Help Desk.

KHC strongly encourages any non-profit partners to submit the FEMA Request for Public Assistance form even before any COVID-19 related costs are incurred. We thank all non-profit service providers for their continued commitment to serve Kentuckians in need in these challenging times.
