WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Homeland Security Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has awarded $5,935,883 to the North Dakota Department of Health. This grant, made available under the Stafford Act, will reimburse costs associated with testing, staffing, and additional efforts related to the department’s COVID-19 public health emergency response efforts.
