Don’t delay! Funding is available within the Oregon budget for Long Term Care facilities that are preparing for, responding to or recovering from a public health emergency. Phase 3 provides reimbursement for eligible expenses related to infectious disease prevention strategies limiting future spread of disease, resident room reconfigurations to reduce per room bed capacity and technology that improves resident socialization and remote clinical care. $20,000 is available per eligible licensed facility on a first-come, first-served basis.
Applicants for Phase 3 must submit requests for funding before August 31, 2022, so it’s important you start the process as soon as possible.
Phase 4 begins on May 1, 2022. Priority 2 applicants (all long-term care facilities that are not Priority 1) can apply between May 1, 2022 and October 31, 2022.
Priority 2 facilities can still submit Phase 2 applications thru June 30, 2022 reimbursing up to $100,000 for enhancements made to air quality and HVAC systems.
