Latest COVID-19 Funding Awards
Last month, the Biden Administration awarded $600 million to 12 domestic manufacturers of COVID-19 testing, through the Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response. Five California manufacturing companies were awarded a total of $317.9 million, more than half of the federal award money. This effort is intended to boost domestic manufacturing of tests while reducing the nation’s vulnerability and dependency on foreign products. In addition to the investments in domestic manufacturing, household will again be able to receive up to four free COVID-19 tests through COVIDTests.gov.
