COVID-19 and The CARES Act Services

Leverage our team’s expertise in disaster recovery for your COVID response

Partnering with Cities, States, and Local Governments Across the Country

We understand COVID relief funding

NMA is working closely with housing authorities across the country to help them strategically transform to the new normal, as well as directly assisting with operations and staffing to continue operations under the current circumstances.

We’re also advising PHAs on implementing HUD guidance such as waivers and financial requirements and new ways of running their offices in a safe way, while still providing a high level of customer service. 

NMA has direct and related experience supporting COVID-19 response and programmatic efforts. Our team is currently providing strategic, operational, and compliance support for the State of South Carolina’s COVID-19 funding administration project. We also designed and are currently administering the Tulsa Housing Authority’s COVID-19 Emergency Rental Assistance program. 

Additionally, NMA is currently providing COVID-19 related services in Harris County; Detroit; the State of South Carolina; the State of Oklahoma; Cook County; the City of Santa Monica; Wayne County; the City of Albuquerque, New Mexico; the State of Vermont; Miami-Dade County; and health care districts in California and Texas. 

Helping You Understand the CARES Act

A dedicated team of experts

Our team of experts is dedicated to assisting agencies in understanding the ever-changing regulatory environment surrounding the CARES Act and COVID relief funding, while bringing real-time best practices in the implementation of COVID-19 related programming. 

In addition to extensive personal qualifications and experience with federal grants, the NMA team working on each project will have access to detailed analysis, best practices, and lessons learned from our COVID-19 response and recovery teams around the country. 

Our team has deep knowledge of disaster recovery (DR) through our experience with communities devastated by Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Wilma, Ike, Dolly, Gustav, and Harvey; Superstorm Sandy; and tornadoes in the Midwest. We’ve also had a unique opportunity to assist Harris County with full lifecycle disaster recovery grants administration and management, from allocation of funds to project closeout. Specifically, our team assisted with:

  • Lobbying for funding allocations at both the congressional and state levels
  • Development of Action Plans and Action Plan amendments
  • Program and project creation
  • Waiver request and negotiation 
  • Strategic management 
  • Project and program implementation
  • IT systems creation and integration
  • Compliance and monitoring
  • Closeout

The COVID crisis is a historic opportunity to maximize government funding. The NMA DR team is working with tribes to optimize multiple funds through a holistic strategy for tribal businesses, partners, and communities. With extensive experience providing professional services to tribal nations, including over 35 tribes trained., NMA is uniquely positioned to provide DR support at this unusual time.
