The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has announced that it will be pushing back the reporting timeline for the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund Program due to the recent passage of the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act.

While the portal will open on a yet undetermined future date, providers can register for gateway access now in preparation for reporting. HHS previously planned to open  by January 15, 2021, with the first deadline for submissions on February 15, 2021.  In December, Congress added another $3 billion in funding to the Provider Relief Fund program and made updates to the reporting requirements. HHS is working to update the reporting requirements to be consistent with this new law. 

Recipients that did not expend their relief fund distributions by December 31, 2020, will also have until June 30, 2021, to use the remaining funds on COVID-19-related expenditures or lost revenues—and then must submit a second and final report no later than July 31, 2021.
