On 7 Apr 2020, Presidential proclamation “Providing Federal Support for Governors’ use of the National Guard to respond to COVID-19” was issued. This prescribes authority for FEMA Mission Assignments and thus, related 502(f)(2) orders duration up to 31 days or fewer (Section 4) for all the prior proclamations – which had constrained T32 502f approvals to 30 days.Initial assessment identifies Tricare, BAH and Leave (in Bold) as the most important benefits impacted by orders length.
