The Department of Health and Human Services today announced the availability of $20 billion to hospital and providers through the third Provider Relief Fund general distribution.

The application period begins Oct. 5.

HHS said that, under this allocation, providers who have already received Provider Relief Fund payments will be invited to apply for additional funding that considers financial losses and changes in operating expenses caused by the coronavirus. Previously ineligible providers, such as those who began practicing in 2020, will also be invited to apply.
