Request to Report Late Due to Extenuating Circumstances

Providers who experienced one or more extenuating circumstances that prevented them from submitting a completed PRF Report by the deadline are offered a one-time opportunity to submit a Request to Report Late Due to Extenuating Circumstance. The opportunities to submit late reports for RP1, RP2, RP3 and RP4 have passed. The PRF Reporting Portal is open from May 15 to June 2, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. ET for providers who have been approved to submit a late RP4 report. Providers must return unused funds to HRSA within 30 days of submitting a report.

Review the Request to Report Late Due to Extenuating Circumstances webpage for more details in this process.

Reporting on Your Use of Funds

Providers who accepted PRF and/or ARP Rural 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) was received. Reporting is an important process in understanding how the program had an impact nationwide. Providers who do not submit a completed report will be considered non-compliant with the Terms and Conditions.

Providers are strongly encouraged to complete their report in the PRF Reporting Portal by the deadlines indicated in the Post-Payment Notice of Reporting Requirements (PDF - 344 KB) in order to remain in compliance with the Terms and Conditions of their PRF and/or ARP Rural payment(s).
