Provider Relief Fund (PRF)

What is the Provider Relief Fund?

The Provider Relief Fund was established through the CARES Act to reimburse eligible healthcare providers for increased expenses or lost revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

As long as Provider Relief Fund grant recipients comply with the applicable requirements, the funds do not have to be repaid.

Important Dates for Reporting

Recipients who received one or more payments exceeding $10,000, in the aggregate, during a Payment Received Period are required to report in each applicable Reporting Time Period as outlined in the table below.
