The Federal Communications Commission has approved funding for 26 more healthcare organizations as part of its $200 million COVID-19 Telehealth Program.
It's the fifth set of applications the FCC has approved for the program. In total, the FCC has distributed $24.9 million from the COVID-19 Telehealth Program to 56 healthcare organizations.
The FCC in April opened applications for the program, which Congress allocated $200 million for as part of the CARES Act.
