Provider Relief Fund Survey

According to HHS, roughly $24 billion remains in the Provider Relief Fund general pot, as well as an additional $8.5 billion set aside for rural providers from the American Relief Plan. Without further Congressional action to appropriate more, this will be the end of the funds. We need your help to make the case to Congress about how much more you need. Please fill out this survey to find out the effect the Provider Relief Fund has had on your organization and how much more you might need to get through the pandemic. Question? Please contact Nicole Fallon.
