TO: All Providers
The U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services (HHS), through the Health Resources and Services Administration
(HRSA), announced $20 Billion in new funding for providers on the frontlines of
the coronavirus pandemic. Eligible providers may begin applying for funding on Monday,
October 5, 2020 through Friday, November 6, 2020.
Under this Phase 3 General Distribution
allocation, providers who have already received Provider Relief Fund payments
will be invited to apply for additional funding which considers financial
losses and changes in operating expenses caused by the coronavirus. Previously
ineligible providers, such as those who began practicing in 2020, will also be
invited to apply. An expanded group of behavioral health providers confronting
the emergence of increased mental health and substance use issues exacerbated
by the pandemic will also be eligible for relief payments.
For more information on the methodology and
application process, the full press release can be found on the HHS website at https://www.hhs.gov/about/news/2020/10/1/trump-administration-announces-20-billion-in-new-phase-3-provider-relief-funding.html.
