DHSS CARES Act Health Care Relief Fund


Program Summary

The Health Care Relief Fund is implemented by the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) with support from the U.S. Department of the Treasury. This $100 million fund is intended to alleviate some of the financial stressors caused by the COVID-19 pandemic on the health care industry.

The Fund is separated into industry-based and subject-based programs. Industry-based programs include specific allocations for Long-Term Care, Home Health Agencies, Behavioral Health, Hospital Systems, and Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities care providers. Health care organizations and providers who are not eligible for industry-based funding may apply for subject-based programs, including programs focusing on Technology, Environmental Modifications and Services, and Community Resiliency. Any organization or provider that receives funds through an industry-based program is not eligible to receive subject-based program funds.

Applicants will be required to submit an application and attest that requested funds align with U.S. Department of the Treasury guidance and FAQ documents.
