Provider Relief Fund Reporting Period 2

The Provider Relief Funds Reporting Portal has opened for period 2. Providers who received one or more PRF payments exceeding $10,000, in the aggregate, during the second Payment Received Period (July 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020) must report on how these funds were used by March 31, 2022 in the PRF Reporting Portal. Payments received during this period must have been expended by December 31, 2021.

New PRF Reporting Portal users must first register in the PRF Reporting Portal (https://prfreporting.hrsa.gov/s/). If a reporting entity has previously reported, they may log into the portal with their existing username, TIN, and password.

HRSA has issued some new guidance for reporting period 2. Links for these new resources are detailed below.

This will also be the first time many recipients of the nursing home and infection control funds will be required to report on the use of these funds. One important thing to note about these funds is that they must be spent on allowable expenses and cannot be applied against lost revenue. Resources for allowable uses of these funds can be found at www.hrsa.gov/provider-relief/reporting-auditing/nursing-home-infection-control-distribution.

There is no grace period for submitting your report for period 2. Make sure you allocate a sufficient amount of time to complete your reporting by March 31, 2022.

Please let Dean Dorton know if we can help as you work through reporting period 2.
