Health Center Fiscal Management During the Pandemic

September 3, 2020

Over the past few months, Health Centers have received supplemental funding through at least five different funding streams arising out of three different Acts of Congress, including most notably:

  • H8C, H8D, and H8E supplemental grant funding
  • Provider Relief Fund (PRF) funding
  • Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans

All this funding offers some welcome relief in the midst of a national health care emergency (and related economic downturn), but also creates a new challenge for health centers: identifying which systems and approaches to engage for each funding stream.

In some ways, the new funding streams are the same as historical funding streams available to Health Centers, but in many ways they differ – both from each other and as compared to typical Section 330 funding. Managing these funding streams is complex and has long term consequences, made more difficult by evolving and often ambiguous federal guidance. Despite all this, health centers are well positioned to successfully manage these funds. 

Join us for a special one-day training to learn about the legal obligations that attach to key supplemental funding streams and strategies to manage those obligations within the framework of traditional Health Center financial management.

Target Audience

  • CEOs, Executive Directors, and other personnel involved in strategic planning
  • CFOs, Finance Managers, and Finance Department Personnel
  • Grant Officers, Managers, Specialists, and Administrators

Learning Objectives

After this training, you will be better able to:

  • Discuss the obligations related to COVID-19 funding streams and how they differ from traditional Section 330 funding
  • Evaluate strategies to manage new and old funding streams
  • Describe reporting obligations and mid-to-long term audit expectations
