WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen and Congressmen Steny H. Hoyer and Anthony G. Brown (all D-Md.) today announced $1.2 million in federal funding to strengthen Prince George’s County’s vaccination plan.
“As Prince George’s County ramps up its COVID-19 vaccination levels, this new emergency federal funding will help ensure vaccine distribution is more efficient, easier to navigate, and reaches as many county residents as possible with the new COVID-19 Vaccine Management Software,” said the lawmakers. “We remain committed to providing our state and local governments with the tools and funding they need as we work together in our COVID-19 recovery efforts.”
Funding comes from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and is authorized under Section 403 of the Robert T. Stafford Act. As an Emergency Protective Measure, funding will be used to create a COVID-19 Vaccine Management Software.
Lawmakers previously announced more than $219.5 million to expand COVID-19 vaccination efforts across the state.
