HHS announced that health care providers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic coronavirus pandemic have until Nov. 6 to apply for a portion of $20 billion in new funding.

According to a press release, the funding is earmarked for health care providers who already received Provider Relief Fund payments to offset any financial losses and operating expenses caused by the pandemic. Previously ineligible providers — including those who began practicing in 2020 — are also invited to apply, as are behavioral health providers who are seeing an uptick in substance use and mental health disorders that have been worsened by the pandemic.
