Texas gets more in COVID-19 federal funeral funds than any other state

Texas, which is often at odds with the federal government, has received more federal aid to pay for funeral expenses associated with COVID-19 than any other state in the country.

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), more than $ 159 million has been allocated to Texas residents who have applied for federal assistance to cover the cost of COVID-19 funerals. California is close with $ 149 million, while New York is in third place with $ 136 million.

While COVID-19 will be given to residents who have applied for federal dollars for a funeral aid program, the Texas governor recently asked for and will receive assistance from the federal government to combat the increase in COVID-19 cases in his state.

FEMA confirmed to The Post on Tuesday that Governor Greg Abbott will open six COVID-19 test sites in various counties of Texas after seeking federal assistance on Dec. 31. Details about when the sites will open and their exact location have not been announced. . Abbott also asked federal medical staff to treat monoclonal antibodies.

After Governor Abbott asked for help, FEMA will open six COVID-19 test sites across Texas.

Meanwhile, Texas has sued the federal government on several COVID fronts. In a letter released Tuesday, Abbott said the Biden administration intends to sue the federal government “after the U.S. Department of Defense tried to hand over the unconstitutional COVID-19 vaccine mandate.”

In the lawsuit, the federal judge sided with Texas, temporarily blocking the federal mandate for COVID vaccines for staff and volunteers in the federal Head Start program. The mandate also requires children under the age of 2 to wear masks, with some exceptions.

Texas has joined other states in filing a lawsuit to block President Biden’s mandate to vaccinate major private employers, federal contractors and health care workers against COVID-19.
