Reminder: COVID-19 Technology Grants for SNFs * Communication In Challenging Times * Apply Today!

During this unprecedented and challenging time for both nursing home staff and residents, we know how important it is for residents and their families to communicate.

CMS has authorized qualified applicants to submit the Civil Money Penalty (CMP) Reinvestment Application, COVID-19 Communicative Technology Request for the purchase of communications technology equipment and accessories.  Links below. These funds are to purchase equipment such as tablets (e.g., iPads, Samsung Galaxy Tabs, Kindle Fires, Amazon Echo Shows) and accessories (e.g., protective covers, headphones, cleaning and disinfection products) to assist with resident and family communications. The maximum amount of grant funding is $3,000 per nursing facility.

We know that the need for communication technology is great and these funds can truly make a difference in the lives of nursing home residents. If you have any questions, please contact Melissa Lawton, CMP Grant Program Specialist, at melissa.lawton@dshs.wa.gov
