PRF Reporting Deadline: Details on 60-day grace period

 The first deadline to report the use of Provider Relief Funds (PRF) is Thursday, Sept. 30, 2021.

The deadline applies to funds received between April 10, 2020, and June 30, 2020.

The Health Resources & Services Administration has offered details on a 60-day grace period offered due to COIVD-19 surges and natural disasters.

Details of the grade period include: 

  • While you will be out of compliance if you do not submit your report by Sept. 30, 2021, recoupment or other enforcement actions will not be initiated during the 60-day grace period.
  • The grace period begins on Oct. 1, 2021 and will end on Nov. 30, 2021.
  • Providers who are able are strongly encouraged to complete their report in the PRF Reporting Portal by Sept. 30, 2021.
  • Providers should return unused funds as soon as possible after submitting their report. All unused funds must be returned no later than 30 days after the end of the grace period (Dec. 30, 2021).

This grace period only pertains to the Reporting Period 1 report submission deadline. There is no change to the Period of Availability for use of PRF payments.
