Tidal Basin is ready to provide the key services required to make the COVID-19 vaccine distribution as seamless as possible. Our team is focused on providing our expertise, and exceeding expectations on the state’s behalf.
The Tidal Basin Preparedness, Resiliency, and Emergency Management (PREM) team is proud to have been selected by Calvert County, Maryland to provide COVID-19 After Action Reporting (AAR) and Improvement Planning services.
Tidal Basin staff was hired to support the Colorado State Emergency Operations Center in August 2020.
The COVID-19 national emergency declaration and the $2 trillion stimulus package including the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act made available a multitude of overlapping funding sources to address costs associated with the ongoing response to COVID-19 by eligible entities (including state and local government, healthcare facilities, and private non-profits).
Recent disasters across the United States have demonstrated the need for individuals, families, organizations and businesses to have a disaster response plan. Mark Misczak, Tidal Basin’s Chief Operations Officer and former FEMA Deputy Director for Individual Assistance, says when preparing for any disaster, there are some recommended items to have on hand.
Initial doses of the vaccine for COVID-19 may be available as early as late October, on a limited basis, with availability increasing in November and December. In anticipation of states receiving the vaccine, there is a necessity — as well as a CDC requirement — for a plan to be developed. The CDC is requiring states to provide their plan no later than November 1, 2020.
On August 7, 2020, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released FR-6218-N-01 which describes program rules, statutory and regulatory waivers, and alternative requirements applicable to supplemental Community Development Block Grant Coronavirus (CDBG-CV) funds that are now available to grantees to aid with the coronavirus pandemic.
