Major Disaster Declaration Granted

​Minnesota will receive federal assistance to help mitigate COVID-19’s impact on public health, state resources, unemployment, and community infrastructure such as health care facilities.

The president approved Gov. Tim Walz's request for a major disaster declaration on April 7.

The funding that comes with the declaration will help support supplemental nutrition programs, medical assistance, funeral assistance, legal services, and statewide hazard mitigation.
