HARTFORD — The state has received an additional extension from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for approval to apply for reimbursement for statewide emergency feeding efforts until August 19.

These vital efforts will continue to be coordinated by the state Department of Agriculture in partnership with the many state and local agencies and nonprofit providers, including community food banks.

FEMA has approved providing continued food support to individuals infected or exposed to Covid-19 that require isolation and quarantine but not hospitalization; individuals who are asymptomatic but are at high risk, such as people over 65 or those who have certain underlying health conditions; and individuals who do not have the resources to prepare or obtain meals, are facing food insecurity and are not eligible for other public nutrition programs.
