HHS Updates PRF Spending and Reporting Guidance 

On June 11, 2021, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released additional guidance for Provider Relief Fund (PRF) recipients through its latest Post-Payment Notice of Reporting Requirements. In the Notice, HHS indicates that:

  • Providers that received funds between April 10, 2020, and June 30, 2020, were still expected to spend funds by June 30, 2021. This provision applies to almost all health centers because of when the funds were initially received. Please note that the reporting deadline for funds in this period has now been extended from July 31, 2021, to Sept. 30, 2021.
  • Providers that received funding after June 30, 2020, had their deadlines to expend funds extended based on when they were received.

Please be sure to review the HHS Notice of Reporting Requirements for complete details to determine your health center’s respective spending and reporting deadlines.
