Governor Kay Ivey awarded $35 million in Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) funds to establish the Alabama Health Care and Emergency Response Providers grant program. The grants will support providers who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The health crisis we continue to face has had significant impact on many fronts. Certainly, individuals, groups and different industries have felt a financial toll, which is why I am proud to continue getting the CARES Act money into the hands of Alabamians who need it,” Governor Ivey said. “The state of Alabama was awarded $1.9 billion in CARES Act money, and my team and I will continue working hard to get it directly to those individuals and groups who have been impacted.”
Through the Alabama Health Care and Emergency Response COVID-19 Relief Grant Program, $35 million of the state’s CARES Act funding is being dedicated to providing cash grants of up to $15,000 to Alabama-Based Health Care and Emergency Response Providers. The application process for this grant program is being administered by the Alabama Department of Finance.
On a first-come-first-served basis, the state of Alabama will offer cash grants in an amount up to $15,000 for Alabama health care and emergency response providers that meet eligibility requirements.
