Business PPE Stopgap Program now Offered

Joe Denoyer - September 10, 2020 4:02 pm

The Kansas Division of Emergency Management (KDEM) has developed a Business PPE Stopgap program for businesses experiencing delivery delays of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).Beginning Monday, September 14, 2020, all resource requests (RR) for private-sector partners will not be supported by the State Emergency Operations Center (SEOC) unless it’s an immediate/life-safety request. Businesses needing PPE should utilize the Business PPE Stopgap program to apply and not our emergency management channels.

The Stopgap program is designed to support businesses that have ordered PPE but are experiencing a backorder or delayed delivery date on their purchase. They may access this program and expect delivery of items, if available, within a few days. The PPE will be shipped from the state inventory at no cost to eligible businesses. Items that are supported through this program are masks and face shields, with gowns and coveralls available to healthcare related businesses. Requirements include being in good standing with the Kansas Department of Revenue and proof of the PPE backorder or delayed delivery.

The program is currently available and businesses my apply through the Business PPE Stopgap application:https://kdem.kansasgis.org/businessPP
