The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), recently announced that it has amended the reporting timeline for the Provider Relief Fund Program (PRF) due to the recent passage of the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act.

PRF recipients may begin registering for gateway access to the Reporting Portal where they will ultimately submit their information in compliance with the new reporting requirements HHS is issuing.
HHS previously planned to open the Reporting Portal by January 15, 2021, with the first deadline for submissions on February 15, 2021. In late December, however, Congress passed the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act which added another $3 billion in funding to the PRF program and included language specific to reporting requirements. The department wanted to give recipients ample time to familiarize themselves with the updated reporting requirements well in advance of required submission deadlines.
