Providers who received a PRF (General or Targeted) and/or American Rescue Plan Rural payment(s), exceeding $10,000 in the aggregate, from January 1 – June 30, 2022 are required to report on their use of funds during RP5. The deadline to submit a report is September 30, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. ET.
- Providers must return unused funds to HRSA within 30 days of submitting a report. Visit the Returning Funds Webpage for more details and instructions on returning funds to HRSA.
HRSA began issuing Final Repayment Notices to recipients of Provider Relief Fund payments who are required to repay funds. For more information about this process, review the Repayment and Debt Collection webpage.
Providers can submit a Decision Review to request a review of HRSA’s decision to seek repayment. The Decision Review process is only for providers that have received a Final Repayment Notice and do not agree with the repayment amount or reason(s) contained in this Notice.
