EXTENDED DEADLINE: Deadline Now Sept. 21 for HHS Private Pay Relief Funding Applications for Senior Living Providers

This funding includes Personal Care Homes in Pennsylvania.

The deadline to apply for HHS private pay relief funding for licensed assisted living providers has been extended to Monday, Sept. 21.  Licensed assisted living providers who have not yet applied should do so before the extended deadline by We believe more details may be coming from HHS Wednesday and we will share that information when we receive it.

As a reminder, if you provided TIN information to the Trade Association Portal, you still need to apply through the HHS portal. And if you did not provide TIN information through the Trade Association Portal, you are still eligible to apply now through the HHS portal.

Additionally, here is some clarification provided by HHS on some frequently asked questions:

If an assisted living community previously applied for Phase 2 General Distribution Medicaid Funds, but received less than 2% of gross revenue, may the community apply for additional funds through the private pay portal?

The answer is no. There is a chance that additional funding could be made available in the future that these providers could apply to receive.

If I made a mistake on my application form, can I amend it?

Some errors will trigger a follow up from HHS for clarification.

As a reminder, there are a number of resources that can be referenced to assist with your application:
