FEMA gives Utah an additional $10 million for COVID relief

The Federal Emergency Management Administration's (FEMA) Public Assistance program has given an additional ten million dollars in funds to the state of Utah for COVID relief. 

These funds are allocated based off Utah's original disaster declaration at the start of the pandemic on April 4, 2020. Since that original declaration, FEMA has provided over 123-million dollars of public assistance funds to Utah to help communities impacted by COVID-19 across the state.

She loves our natural world and being part of wildlife research. Now, getting to communicate that kind of research to the UPR listeners through this position makes her love what she does even more. In her free time, you can find her outside on a trail with her partner Matt and her goofy pups Dodger and Finley. They love living in a place where there are year-round adventures to be had!
