MD Receives Major Disaster Declaration

MARYLAND – Governor Larry Hogan announced the state has received a Major Disaster Declaration from the federal administration.

Under this declaration, Maryland is eligible for reimbursement for the Emergency Protective Measures the state and local government agencies, and non-profits took under the Stafford Act.

“This declaration will help provide much-needed funding for state and local governments and nonprofits, and it will be another important step in Maryland’s aggressive and coordinated response to COVID-19,” said Hogan.

This decision comes hours after Governor Larry Hogan pushed for disaster decelerations for states while in a teleconference with the White House.
