Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) announced that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has allocated an additional $274 million in CARES Act funding to Connecticut hospitals.

“While the additional $274 million for Connecticut hospitals is welcome, HHS took too long to distribute this critical money from the CARES Act. Connecticut is no longer a hot spot, but our hospitals are hurting from earlier this year and are still battling COVID day to day. They are facing substantial losses. The House passed the Heroes Act in May to provide additional funding for hospitals. As cases continue to rise in the United States, the Senate must step up to provide more relief,” said Larson.
