Federal funding going to NJ hospitals to fight COVID-19

New Jersey hospitals will receive over $1.7 billion from the Provider Relief Fund established in the bipartisan Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone Jr. announced the award.

“Health care providers on the frontline of the pandemic in New Jersey desperately need this funding to save lives and care for patients,” Pallone said. “Distribution must be fair and responsive to the areas that are treating the highest number of COVID-19 patients.”

This is the third round of funding that the federal government has distributed to New Jersey.
