HHS Announces $20 Billion in New Phase 3 Provider Relief Funding
On Oct.1, HHS announced $20 billion in new funding for providers on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic. Eligible providers may apply for funding through Nov. 6. Under this Phase 3 allocation, providers that have already received Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund (Provider Relief Fund) payments are invited to apply for additional funding related to financial losses and changes in operating expenses caused by COVID-19. Previously ineligible providers — such as those who began practicing in 2020 — will also be invited to apply.
