ABSTRACT

Selected Federal Financial Assistance for Emergency Response to Extreme Heat: In Brief [August 11, 2021]   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Document: "This report identifies federal assistance potentially available through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Department of Agriculture, and other authorities for certain extreme heat response costs incurred by SLTTs [state, local, tribal, territorial governments] and eligible community organizations (e.g., hospitals). Given evolving and flexible program and grant guidelines, the lists in this report may not be comprehensive. Program applicability to each applicant or incident may vary. Federal assistance for other costs related to extreme heat (e.g., preparedness, infrastructural improvements, and assistance for individuals) are not detailed here, but may be available from the Department of Energy, EPA (e.g., the Heat Islands Reduction Program), and other agencies."
