The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act (PPPHCEA) and the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA), appropriated $178 billion to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus, domestically or internationally, for necessary expenses to reimburse, through grants or other mechanisms, eligible health care providers for health care-related expenses or lost revenues that are attributable to coronavirus. A portion of this funding will be distributed as direct payments through the Provider Relief Fund (PRF), administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Eligible providers of health care, services, and support may receive Provider Relief Fund payments for health care-related expenses or lost revenues attributable to coronavirus. In addition to the Provider Relief Fund, $8.5 billion was appropriated as part of the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act of 2021 for payments to rural providers or suppliers for health care-related expenses and lost revenues attributable to coronavirus. A portion of this funding will be distributed as payments under the ARP Rural Distribution, administered by HRSA.
