Additional COVID-19 Financial Relief Approved

On Dec. 27, former President Donald J. Trump signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (H.R. 133) into law (P.L. 116-260). Among other things, the bill extends the current Paycheck Protection Program through March 31 and adds $284 billion in funding for the program. The legislation also allocated additional monies to the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund (Provider Relief Fund), helping with COVID-19 bridge funding for neurosurgeons and the hospitals in which they practice. To date, nearly $150 billion of the more than $175 billion in the Provider Relief Fund have been distributed.
