HHS Announces $20 Billion in New Funding for Phase 3 of Provider Relief Funds

PDF Version


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.
