The Assistance Program to Private Hospitals under the Coronavirus Relief Fund is intended to provide emergency assistance (grants or short-term loans) to private hospitals for necessary expenditures related to the COVID-19 emergency. The allocation to each institution will be based on a necessity standard.
Restrictions: These funds will only be available to cover necessary expenditures related to the COVID-19 emergency that have not been covered or reimbursed, or that will not be covered in the future, by other state, federal or private insurance programs that the institutions may have, including funds received through the CARES Act’s Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund. Entities that receive these funds will not be able to use them to pay executive bonuses, debt refinancing or other expenses that are determined to be ineligible. Likewise, the beneficiary entities must sign an agreement as part of the program in which they agree to return the money if it is determined in the future that they did not comply with any of the eligibility requirements. Beneficiaries must spend the money on or before December 30, 2020. This will be a first come, first served basis program.
