Pulsara Launches COVID-19 Funding Assistance
Thursday, June 18, 2020 | Comments

Pulsara launched a free funding assistance initiative to help healthcare organizations more quickly and easily secure COVID-19 funding. The free funding resource aims to simplify the process to find, filter and determine funding eligibility, especially as it relates to real-time care, team communications and telehealth grants.

The government enacted three separate coronavirus-relief packages at a total cost of more than $2 trillion. The most recent legislation, the CARES Act, provides $1.8 trillion in direct aid to individuals and businesses, the largest stimulus package in U.S. history. Pulsara reports that the opportunities for healthcare organizations are widespread, and barriers and requirements are lower than ever.

"The amount of money available for recovery and preparedness is unprecedented, but many organizations don't know which grants to apply for or how to get started," said Anna Larson, program director of strategic initiatives at Pulsara. "We've created specific guides for each funding opportunity, with tips for the application process, deadlines, links to program websites and other essential information — all to help our communities more easily find the funding they need."

After extensive research into the details of this multiorganizational funding, Pulsara has identified the most relevant funding resources for medical operations, hospitals and EMS/prehospital/MIH-CP, along with the information needed to apply. This initiative allows the interested organization to quickly decide which opportunities best fit their needs, and then the Pulsara team will help them figure out how to tell their story, make their application competitive and receive the relief they need.

"Many healthcare organizations don't know they qualify for funding, and others who feel overwhelmed or uncertain about whether they qualify should also take a second look," said Larson. "They may be surprised at what they're eligible for, especially if they collaborate regionally."

Available funding opportunities include COVID-19 Telehealth Program, distance learning and telemedicine, Telehealth Network Grant Program, Regional Catastrophic Preparedness Grant Program and the Rural Emergency Medical Communications Demonstration Project. Examples of funds earmarked or provided to state, local, tribal and territorial governments, as well as to hospitals, other health care providers and state hospital associations include the $100 billion HHS CARES Act Provider Relief Fund, $150 billion Treasury Coronavirus Relief Fund and the $730 million Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Crisis Response Cooperative Agreement.
