September 3, 2020 — Blog    — Coronavirus Bulletin    — Press Releases   

Topline: The Trump Administration took another step to help patients and providers, this time expanding the Provider Relief Fund to assisted living facilities. This action supports frontline providers and helps to protect the nearly 1 million vulnerable older Americans in their care.

Key Details:

  • Assisted living facilities (ALF) may now apply for funding under the Provider Relief Fund Phase 2 General Distribution allocation.
  • Like other providers applying for Phase 2 funding, eligible ALFs will receive 2 percent of their annual revenue from patient care.
  • Helpful information for these providers can be found at the Provider Relief Fund website, which includes previously recorded Phase 2 application webinars, frequently asked questions and other information on how to apply through the recently simplified application process.
  • Assisted living facilities, like all providers applying for the current Phase 2 General Distribution funding, will have until September 13, 2020, to begin their application by entering their Tax Identification Number (TIN) for validation.
