Columbia school board applies for $10K in disaster relief funds

What happened: The district will apply for over $10,000 in disaster relief funds through the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency. Because of the governor's stay-at-home order, the meeting was held via videoconference. It was livestreamed and can be replayed on YouTube.

Background: In accordance with the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, state and local governments can be reimbursed for expenses incurred as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Pennsylvania school districts and municipalities can apply for these federal funds through the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, a state-run agency that specializes in disaster prevention and recovery.
