Leadership in Uncertain Times

HHS extended the application deadline to apply for the HHS Provider Relief Funds to September 13, 2020.  You must submit your TIN (tax identification number) for validation by the deadline in order to apply for funding.  In addition to extending the deadline, HHS also simplified the application process.  Please use this link to obtain an updated copy of the application for reference only:  https://www.hhs.gov/sites/default/files/provider-distribution-application-form.pdf?language=en

*Please note the application will still need to be completed via the online portal.  As part of this revised application process, the only document dentists will need to upload with the application will be your most recent federal tax return.

Practices receiving more than $10,000 in relief funds will be required to submit reports about the use of their provider relief funds.  Complete reporting details have not been released yet.  Here are a few things we do know from the HHS Provider Relief site and FAQ:

Note: If you received an EIDL loan, per the EIDL loan agreement,  you need to report to the SBA any proceeds received from other government sources and they will determine if the funds are a duplication of benefits.  You will need to notify them via email at disastercustomerservice@sba.gov.  Be sure to include your loan and application numbers found at the top of your loan paperwork (SBA Form 1391)
