The proposal is meant to supplement the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) $5 million COVID prevention funding, which has been available to help the U,S.
government and its allies fight the pandemic.
The $100m would be awarded to the states of Alaska, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington, according to the proposal.
The grants will be distributed over the next five years.
