Health & Human Services has now announced a third cycle for General Provider Relief Funding and have queued up another $20B distribution. Under this new cycle, previously ineligible providers, such as those who began practicing in 2020 will be eligible to apply, as well as 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.
This application cycle is open to all providers eligible for a previous PRF distribution, plus new 2020 providers and behavioral health providers may apply. Providers are eligible regardless of whether you were eligible for, applied for, received, accepted, or rejected payment from prior PRF distributions. The new portal opened on October 5, 2020 and will be a first-come; first-serve distribution.
