Response Deadlines for Federal Financial Support Programs Extended

Deadlines have been extended for two federal programs created by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act that providers and practices can use for financial support. HHS has extended from 30 to 45 days the deadline for providers to attest to receiving payments from the Provider Relief Fund and accept that program’s terms and conditions. In addition, the US Small Business Administration yesterday extended the safe-harbor period for returning Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funds (due to an inability to certify in good faith that a PPP loan was necessary) by one week, to May 14.
