For SLTT governments, evaluating facility eligibility is not necessary for most emergency work. PNPs are generally not eligible for reimbursement for emergency services because they are not legally responsible for providing those services.
PNPs that own or operate a medical or custodial care facility are eligible for:
Work must be necessary as a direct result of the emergency or major disaster (44 CFR §206.223(a)(1)). Costs must be directly related to COVID-19 cases. For example, emergency medical care costs related to a non-COVID-19 illness or injury are not eligible.
Costs for personal protective equipment (PPE) for health care providers who are working in a hospital treating COVID-19 patients are eligible, as it is necessary to prevent further spread of the virus and protect health care workers and other patients.
All assistance provided under PA is subject to standard program eligibility requirements, including reasonable cost, procurement, and duplication of benefits requirements.
