We are being contacted by universities & colleges using FEMA grant funds for the purchase of cloth face masks, which qualify as PPE through this grant program.
The grant is for preparedness funding and is provided by FEMA to state, local, tribal, and territorial entities in the form of non-disaster grants. Preparedness and other grant programs support US citizens and first responders to ensure that everyone can work together as a nation to build, sustain and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from and mitigate all hazards.

There have been reports that scammers are pretending to be the government, contacting people by robocall, text message, email and other outreach. These scammers say they can get people financial help during the COVID-19 pandemic, and then ask for money or personal information, like Social Security, bank account or credit card numbers. Donâ€™t trust anyone who offers financial help and then asks for money or personal information. Federal and local disaster workers do not solicit or accept money. The Department of Homeland Security, FEMA, U.S. Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control staff never charge for disaster assistance.
