Governor’s Press Release: Governor’s Emergency Declaration secures millions in funding for vaccination effort

By • March 2, 2021

The following Press Release was sent out by Governor Little on March 2nd, 2021:

Boise, Idaho – Governor Brad Little announced today the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has awarded $39 million to the Idaho Office of Emergency Management (IOEM) to support COVID-19 vaccination efforts throughout the state.

These funds would not be available to Idaho without Governor Little’s active emergency declaration.

“We are in the final lap of the pandemic fight, and the finish line is close,” Governor Little said. “Idaho’s active COVID-19 emergency declaration was critical for Idaho to receive this federal assistance for vaccination centers. These centers will help us administer the safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine to Idahoans who want it, pushing us ever-closer to normalcy.”

IOEM will disperse funds to eligible applicants to assist with the costs of vaccination efforts. The $39 million will be distributed to the state at 100 percent federal cost share.

“I continue to encourage Idahoans to receive the vaccine as soon as they are eligible,” Governor Little said. “Idaho’s economy and state budget are outperforming every other state. We have the strongest economy and the most financially solvent state budget. We have stayed open longer than almost every other state. We are on a bright path, and the funds made available due to the emergency declaration will help us capitalize on our progress.”

  1. The Governor’s obligation is to fight for his People.
    Getting paid federal money for Mandating Lock Down’s and Masking His People shows a very sick and possibly corrupt mind.
    We ask the governor to resign now. This would be best for all.
    At minimum this person needs to be pushed out from authority in the upcoming primaries.

    We The People ask a highly qualified, freedom loving constitutionalist to start running for Governor now. We will back you!!!

  2. I just saw a headline in the Idaho Press advocating vaccines for school-age children. With Bill Gate’s history of sterilizing young women, and the unkown side effects of this new Covid vaccine, which isn’t really a vaccine, who would push this experimental drug on developing children and adolescents?

    Brad Little touts his emergency declarations as a success, but the harm he will have done, if this ever ends, is incalculable.

  3. Strange that they never look at what you have to do to get the money. Is it that crucial to have the money without any regard for what you are signing Idaho people up for? What else is involved? Assurances are attached to everything with the federal government who has taken a decidedly communist turn. It is time for do-Little to go. We need a real conservative with no ties to the federal government to do what we vote them in to do. The key is that they do what they say they will do not say one thing and do another. Take off the cowboy hat gov. You haven’t earned it.

  4. The noun “conservative” needs to be expanded to include the qualifier of “never-politician/neo-con” and “someone who has the fortitude to speak his mind with no PC overtones and let the chips fall where they may!”

  5. For those of you who have not read the plethora of Little’s “emergency declarations” , check out https://coronavirus.idaho.gov/governors-actions/
    There have been 13 extensions from the original!
    Deaths noted in 5/12/20 were 69; 2/26/21 were 1850. How many of those were overweight, obese or elderly with weakened immune systems (which we have never heard from healthcare “experts” how to strengthen our immune system, just get the shot!)
    It’s time Little acted like Greg Abbott!

  6. Yes, Washington DC will pay Idaho to take power away from the people and consolidate it in the governors office by emergency decree. But that doesn’t make it right or good.

  7. We’re not open until we are open. Please stop taking federal money, which we don’t need – we have an over 8 billion dollar surplus. Stop contract tracing us, requiring masks and social distancing. We’ve been fleeced, stripped of our rights and traumatized enough. We must take our state back as it’s clear it will never be given to us. We don’t want bread crumbs. We just want to stop the tyranny and be allowed to live our lives as we see fit.

  8. Little governor is a total disgrace, traitor, and committing treasonous emolument violations. He needs to be impeached. PERIOD.
