Reporting on Your Use of Funds

Providers who accepted PRF payment(s) agreed to the Terms and Conditions of the program which included a requirement to report on the use of the funds. Reporting Periods are associated with the date a payment(s) were received. Reporting is an important process in understanding how the program had an impact nationwide. Providers who do not submit a completed report are considered non-compliant with the Terms and Conditions.

Providers Who Were Required to Report in Reporting Periods 1 and/or 2

Providers who received one or more payments totaling greater than $10,000 in the aggregate during a Payment Received Period must report on use of funds in each applicable Reporting Period.
