The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has opened the portal for health care providers to apply through Oct. 26 for a portion of $25.5 billion in COVID-19 relief funds, the agency announced. Providers will submit a single application to request payments from both the $17 billion “Phase 4” Provider Relief Fund distribution and $8.5 billion in American Rescue Plan Act funds for rural providers.
HRSA aims to begin distributing the ARPA funds in mid-to-late November and the PRF funds in early-to-mid December.
HRSA will be hosting webinar sessions for Phase 4 and ARP Rural applicants, featuring guidance on how to navigate the application portal.
