Resources provided for COVID-19 response

Congressman Brian Higgins announced skilled nursing facilities in Western New York will receive more than $20 million in federal emergency funding to address increased expenses related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Nursing homes, by their very mission, serve those most at-risk of serious consequences as a result of infection due to age, pre-existing conditions and close proximity,” he said. “This funding provides needed resources to help facilities meet the challenges of prevention and protection against COVID-19.”

This week, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released $4.9 billion for skilled nursing facilities nationwide. The funding was included in the CARES Act approved by the House of Representatives on March 27.

The distribution of these resources was based on a formula providing each facility with a base amount of $50,000 plus an additional $2,500 per bed. New York state received a total of $317.805 million.
