Eligibility – Private Non-Profit Organizations (PNP)

Do You Qualify?

To be eligible for Public Assistance, a PNP applicant must show that it has:

  • A ruling letter from the Internal Revenue Service granting tax exemption under sections 501(c), (d), or (e) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954; or
  • Documentation from the state substantiating that the non-revenue producing organization or entity is a nonprofit entity organized or doing business under state law.
  • Eligible PNP’s must also own or operate an eligible facility. For PNPs, an eligible facility is one that provides an eligible service, which includes education, utilities, emergency, medical, custodial care, and other essential social services.
  • Private entities, including for profit hospitals or restaurants, are not eligible for assistance from FEMA under Public Assistance. However, state, local, tribal, and territorial government entities may contract with private entities to carry out eligible emergency protective measures. In these cases, FEMA will reimburse the eligible applicant for the cost of eligible work, and the applicant will then pay the private entity for the provision of services.

Read Full Statement
Release Date:
February 3, 2021

FEMA is committed to supporting our state, local, tribal and territorial partners in responding to COVID-19 pandemic.

The additional direction received yesterday from the President will allow FEMA to increase this support to our state, local, tribal, and territorial partners through additional federal funding. Specifically, the President’s directive allows FEMA to pay 100% federal funding for the costs of activities that have previously been determined eligible, from the beginning of the pandemic in January 2020 to Sept. 30, 2021.

This means that all work eligible under FEMA’s existing COVID-19 policies, including increasing medical capacity, non-congregate sheltering, and emergency feeding distribution will be reimbursed at 100% federal share. For projects that have already been approved, FEMA will amend the existing awards to adjust the federal funding amounts. No action will be required by the applicants.

In addition, the President’s directive allows FEMA to expand the activities eligible for reimbursement for work conducted after Jan. 21, 2021 and until Sept. 30, 2021. Specifically, the costs to support the safe opening and operation of eligible schools, child-care facilities, healthcare facilities, non-congregate shelters, domestic violence shelters, transit systems, and other eligible applicants will be eligible after Jan. 21.

This may include funding for the provision of personal protective equipment, disinfecting services and supplies. These costs will also be reimbursed at 100% federal share. In the coming days, FEMA will issue an amended COVID-19 policy to implement this directive.
