WASHINGTON (WDTN) – The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) awarded a grant that provides $2.6 million in federal funding to University Hospitals Health System, Inc. for Emergency Protective Measures.

I will continue to work with my bipartisan colleagues in Congress to ensure that Ohio has the necessary resources during these uncertain times.”
