Governor Lamont has announced the state will begin dispersing $31.2 million to nursing homes as part of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the Governor's announcement, these new funds, which comes on top of $150 million already provided to nursing homes over the course of the pandemic, will be used to continue funding for COVID-19 testing of staff and residents, fund alternate recovery facilities, and aid nursing homes which have struggled to pay nursing home user fees in the first quarter of 2020.
The aid will be distributed in two phases, which are outlined below.
