UCF Direct Services Grant Q3 Reporting Due April 17, 2020

Q3 UCF reports covering data from January 1, 2020 - March 31, 2020 are due April 17, 2020. Please upload reporting forms to our Dropbox. We know there are new and unique challenges each of you are facing in this pandemic and we want to thank you for all of your hard work! A couple of important notes we would like you to keep in mind while completing your Q3 reports.
  • Track ALL telehealth visits. Just as you would a traditional visit, please make sure to track (as best you can) all the same information you would normally report. We want to put together a good number to show these telehealth visits you are all providing throughout this pandemic.
  • When tracking the visit type in section 5 - place all telehealth visits in the 'other' category. And note that those visits are telehealth. 
  • With closures, limited staffing/volunteers, and the sheer high work volume may of us are facing - we understand it may not be possible to get these numbers in on time. Please do the best you can! Email and let us know if this won't be possible and we will work with you.

We would like to highlight that these funds CAN be used towards new COVID-19 needs - the funds in this grant are to help your organization provide direct services to your patients. Just make sure you note it in your Q3 report narrative!
