BOTHELL, Wash. -- The Federal Emergency Management Agency has provided more than $7.5 million to the Oregon Department of Administrative Services  to help with personal protective equipment purchases.

The funding was made available under the major disaster declaration, which was approved on March 28.

FEMA provided $7,509,180.04 to assist with the state's efforts to purchase PPE, such as disposable gowns, masks, face shields, gloves, and sanitizer. This equipment will assist hospitals, medical clinics, city and county governments, and certain private nonprofits across the state.

For the COVID-19 response, FEMA has simplified the Public Assistance application and funding process to address the magnitude of this event. This will also allow local officials to receive eligible funding more quickly.
