Please be advised that the State of Ohio is distributing a portion of Coronavirus Relief Funds to several healthcare provider types as relief to assist with the impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. These types include: Skilled Nursing Facilities, Private Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICFs/IID), MyCare Waiver Providers, Ohio Home Care Waiver Providers (OHCW), PASSPORT Waiver Providers, Home Health Waiver Providers, Assisted Living Providers, Behavioral Health Providers, and Critical Access, Rural and Distressed Hospitals. Funds are being disbursed based on data-driven calculations for each provider type as assessed by several State of Ohio agencies.
Provider relief payments will be made by the Ohio Office of Budget and Management (OBM) to providers upon completion of registration and certification online through OBM's Ohio Grants Partnership website. For additional information regarding these funds and eligibility, please review the July 22 memo from OBM Director Kimberly Murnieks as well as the Frequently Asked Questions.
