The Biden administration is providing $600 million in funding to restart the HHS program that provides up to four free at-home COVID tests.

HHS says the goal is to prevent possible shortages as COVID cases rise during colder months, and to avoid supply chain issues that occurred during previous surges. The program will restart the COVIDTests.gov website starting Sept. 25, and all tests will be delivered by mail for free.

The tests will be provided by 12 manufacturers that will produce 200 million of the over-the-counter tests. HHS noted that there may be some delay between ordering and delivering, and that households should plan accordingly.
