Fourth round of healthcare Provider Relief Funds (PRF) available starting Sept. 29

PRF Phase 4 will reimburse smaller providers—who tend to operate on thin margins and often serve vulnerable or isolated communities—for their lost revenues and COVID-19 expenses at a higher rate compared to larger providers.

As a reminder, a grace period for PRF Reporting Period 1 has been extended sixty days.
