Urgent Action Requested!
Contact US Senate Offices ASAP!!
Argentum learned late yesterday that the remaining $20+ billion in the Provider Relief Fund (PRF) may be considered as a potential source of revenue to pay for the $953 billion bipartisan infrastructure package. While we have not been able to officially confirm this, we need all senior living advocates to help amplify our message to oppose any efforts that would compromise Provider Relief Funds.

We anticipate that the bipartisan infrastructure package will be finalized over the weekend and formal consideration could begin as soon as Monday, July 26. Argentum is very concerned that lawmakers may see the PRF as one of the larger sources of unspent funds that could be used to offset new spending without being fully aware of the immediate needs for these funds, including the anticipated release of Phase IV Provider Relief funds.

We urge you to review a template message that has been prepared, customize it as you see fit, and send it to NC’s US Senate health staff members urging them to not utilize Provider Relief Funds.
