The RCPA Finance and Reimbursement Committee met last week. The recording of the meeting is available to RCPA members here. Rick Smith from the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) fiscal office reported that 20% of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) providers had not yet submitted the expense report accounting for the use of CARES Act 24 funds that were paid to providers due to COVID-related expenses. Providers who do not submit the necessary documentation will be required to repay the funds and will be receiving a recoupment letter from the Department of Human Services.
We strongly encourage any provider who has received these funds to submit the necessary documentation in order to retain the funding. ODP is open to still accepting the documentation, so there is time to avoid repayment if action is taken quickly.
If you have any questions regarding this process or need assistance to complete the documentation, please contact Carol Ferenz, RCPA Director of IDD Division.
