Provider Relief Funding Update

Although the deadline to initiate a Provider Relief Funding (PRF) application was Oct. 26, 2021 and the deadline to submit a completed application was Nov. 3, 2021, providers still have an opportunity to contact the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) about the application process. HRSA is still allowing providers to submit technical questions via email to ProviderReliefContact@hrsa.org, which implies they may allow providers who initiated their applications prior to Oct. 26th to submit in the future.

Information on completing the application can be found using the following links:

HRSA recently estimated that it will distribute the ARP rural provider payments by late November, and the Phase 4 General Distribution payments are expected to be made to providers by late December.

We remind members who received more than $10,000 in PRF funding prior to July 1, 2020 that reporting associated with that funding was due through the PRF Reporting Portal by Sept. 30th. However, HRSA has provided a 60-day grace period to the Sept. 30th deadline in response to challenges providers are facing given recent COVID-19 surges and natural disasters around the country. Providers that were unable to submit their PRF reporting by the deadline still have until Nov. 30, 2021. HRSA stresses that:

  • While you are considered to be out of compliance if you did not submit your report by Sept. 30, 2021, recoupment or other enforcement actions will not be initiated during the 60-day grace period.
  • The grace period began on Oct. 1, 2021 and will end on Nov. 30, 2021.
