FCC Now Accepting Applications for COVID-19 Telehealth Program Funding Opportunity

The Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Wireline Competition Bureau is now accepting applications for the COVID-19 Telehealth Program.

On April 2, 2020, the Commission released an order establishing the COVID-19 Telehealth Program. The COVID-19 Telehealth Program will provide immediate support to eligible health care providers responding to the COVID-19 pandemic by fully funding their telecommunications services, information services, and devices necessary to provide critical connected care services until the program’s funds have been expended or the COVID-19 pandemic has ended.

The COVID-19 Telehealth Program will provide $200 million in funding, appropriated by Congress as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, to help health care providers provide connected care services to patients at their homes or mobile locations in response to the novel Coronavirus 2019 disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

The FCC also released a webinar for this program. This video walks through the application process for the FCC’s COVID-19 Telehealth Program online application portal and provides answers to frequently asked questions regarding the process. Click here to view the webinar!
