"This request for a major disaster declaration, if approved, will provide the commonwealth additional federal assistance beyond what was included in the emergency declaration I announced on March 13. The major disaster declaration would give support and flexibility to our communities as they respond to the COVID-19 outbreak. This would include a request for FEMA's public assistance program, which would make financial assistance available to cities and towns, state agencies and certain nonprofits statewide. The disaster declaration also requests FEMA's individual assistance program."
