Attention Housing Support (GRH) Providers: COVID Add-on Reporting Due by 9-30-20
Posted on September 23, 2020 by LeadingAge
One final reminder that reporting on funds received last spring related to the Housing Support (GRH) Program are due by the end of September.
The Minnesota Legislature approved a one-time appropriation to temporarily increase Housing Support funding through DHS for expenses in the months of March, April and May 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The legislation requires all vendors to submit documentation by 9/30/2020 showing that increased funding was used for COVID-19 related expenses. DHS mailed a letter on 8/24/2020 to each agency. The letter details the total amount paid under your Agency ID number.
How do I complete a report?
- Choose one person from your agency to complete report at https://bit.ly/reportmy15percent.
- Report expenses once for each Agency ID number that you received.
- Reports do not need to be broken down by location, program, or person.
- Reporting must be completed as soon as possible, but no later than 9/30/2020.
What if we decided not to utilize the funds or need a new check?
Checks that have not been cashed will be automatically cancelled on 10/1/2020. If you have not received one or all of the checks, please use the information from the reporting notice letter to request an affidavit to receive replacement checks at syscomp.MMB@state.mn.us.
What if our agency did not spend all of the funds?
When the form is electronically submitted, information will appear on where to return any unused allocation.
