Part 1: Avoid Losing COVID-19 Provider Emergency Relief Fund Payments

Cut through the confusion of HHS’ Provider Emergency Relief Funding program.  This training will help you clearly understand what you are really committing to and how to comply to retain this much-needed assistance.

Part 2: Adhere to Strict PPP Loan Rules & Keep 100% of COVID-19 Funding

How you report your Payroll Protection Program (PPP) funding usage will determine whether you keep or must return the money.  Attend this upcoming expert-led training to learn how to maximize your loan forgiveness.


How much of the HHS Emergency Relief money and the Small Business Association’s (SBA) PPP loan you get to keep depends on your ability to comply with their reporting requirements.

This sounds easy enough, but the rules are changing rapidly, and the money at risk is significant. You really can’t afford to make a mistake. The good news is you don’t have to tackle this alone.

During these online trainings, healthcare attorneys, Kristyn DeFilipp, Daphne Kackloudis and Ashley Watson, will walk you through the complications of complying with both funding sources. Ultimately, these two online trainings will help you ethically keep as much of the funding as possible (versus being required to send it back to the government).

PART 1: Avoid Losing COVID-19 Provider Emergency Relief Fund Payments

Available immediately on-demand on CD

The emergency provider relief money you received from HHS may provide you with financial relief from the COVID-19 shutdown, but you should know it comes with some very real strings attached.

The problem is, in the rush to distribute the funds the government did not clarify the requirements. So, even if you did take the time to read through everything you received, you may not have realized what you were agreeing to. So, now that you’ve accepted the money, how can you protect yourself and your practice from the repercussions of noncompliance with rules you may not even have been aware of?

During this 60-minute online training, healthcare attorney, Kristyn DeFilipp, Esq., will walk you through EXACTLY what you are required to do to keep the emergency relief money you’ve received.

PART 2: Adhere to Strict PPP Loan Rules & Keep 100% of COVID-19 Funding

Available immediately on-demand on CD

Whether you qualify to keep all of the COVID-19 Payroll Protection Program (PPP) funds you’ve received from the Small Business Administration (SBA) or are required to pay it back with interest is up to you The actions you take in the next 60 days will determine whether your practice has to PAY BACK the money as a loan with interest, instead of being allowed to keep it as a non-repayable-grant.

This is where healthcare attorneys, Daphne L. Kackloudis, Esq. and Ashley B. Watson, Esq., can help you and your practice. During their 60-minute online training, Daphne and Ashley will cut through conflicting PPP rules and tell you how to get your grant approved.
