The College of the Holy Cross in Worcester received $3.4 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency as a reimbursement for COVID-19 testing.

Holy Cross provided 96,487 coronavirus tests to students, faculty, and staff between January and June 2021, according to the Tuesday press release from FEMA.

“FEMA is pleased to be able to assist the College of the Holy Cross with these costs,” said Lori Ehrlich, FEMA Region 1 Regional administrator, in the press release. “Providing resources for our partners on the front lines of the pandemic fight is critical to their success, and our success as a nation.”

The college requires testing twice per week for all students and certain faculty and staff, according to its website. Vaccination against COVID-19 is mandated.

As of Tuesday, FEMA has provided more than $947 million in public assistance grants to Massachusetts organizations to reimburse the state for pandemic-related expenses.
