Virginia has received a Major Disaster Declaration to aid in the Commonwealth’s response to the novel coronavirus.

A Major Disaster Declaration designation provides federal public assistance for all areas in the Commonwealth of Virginia affected by COVID-19 at a federal cost share of 75 percent. This allows state agencies, local governments, and certain non-profit organizations to purchase additional supplies and receive reimbursements for COVID-19 related costs under its Public Assistance program.

The Major Disaster Declaration also authorizes federal agencies to provide direct emergency assistance to Virginia.
