Telehealth Funding Available through New COVID-19 Relief Program

April 14, 2020
The FCC's COVID-19 Telehealth Program is now accepting applications for eligible healthcare providers to receive immediate support as they respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The program’s $200 million of funding, provided under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, will fund telecommunications services, information services and devices necessary to provide critical connected care services to COVID-19 patients at their homes or mobile locations.
Program eligibility is limited to not-for-profit and public eligible healthcare providers that fall within one of the following categories:
  • post-secondary educational institutions offering healthcare instruction
  • teaching hospitals and medical schools
  • community health centers or health centers providing healthcare to migrants
  • local health departments or agencies
  • community mental health centers
  • not-for-profit hospitals
  • rural health clinics
  • skilled nursing facilities
  • consortia of healthcare providers consisting of one or more entities falling into the above categories. 
Application Assistance
The COVID-19 Telehealth Program is not a grant program and comes with significant pre-application, documentation, reporting and compliance requirements.
Grassi Healthcare Advisors can help your not-for-profit organization determine eligibility, apply for the funds and comply with program requirements. This funding is limited, so efficiency and application accuracy will be key to securing the support your organization needs. Contact Joseph Tomaino, CEO, at 212.223.5020 or for more information.
Opportunities for For-Profit Collaboration
The COVID-19 Telehealth Program provides unique collaboration opportunities for not-for-profit providers and for-profit medical practices to join together to provide telehealth services during this global pandemic. Grassi Healthcare Advisors is in the unique position to help these organizations identify potential partnerships and pursue these collaborations. 
Whether you are a not-for-profit organization interested in applying for the program, or a medical or psychiatry practice interested in partnering with such an organization, contact Joseph Tomaino, CEO of Grassi Healthcare Advisors, as soon as possible
