Healthcare System Relief Fund
Information on COVID-19 Emergency Healthcare System Relief Fund Allocations
Due to the modifications made to the program, an updated application will be available soon.
On March 19, 2020, Governor Sununu issued Emergency Order #9, which established the COVID-19 Emergency Healthcare System Relief Fund. The order created a $50 million fund to provide emergency relief to hospitals and other health care providers that are serving as an essential component of the State’s healthcare system during the COVID-19 state of emergency.
On May 15, 2020 the state expanded this fund by allocating an additional $50,000,000. Of that supplemental amount, $30 million will be used to support long term care providers and the remaining $20 million available to all other providers.
In addition, the focus of the program is shifting from urgent relief for providers of frontline COVID-19 response services at risk of closing to a second phase designed to provide broader relief for all healthcare providers impacted by the COVID-19 emergency.
