Frequently Asked Questions Q 1. What is the grant period? A 1. FY2011-FY2014
Frequently Asked Questions Q 2. How much funding is available per county? A 2. Each of the 23 counties will receive $18,000 in base funding to start the Assessment and Capacity steps from April 1, 2011-June 30, This funding will assist counties in hiring a full-time staff person dedicated to the project, supplies, benefits, mileage to trainings and meetings, support for a local EPI workgroup and other costs as necessary.
Frequently Asked Questions Q 2. How much funding is available per county? A 2. In FY11, counties will receive $18,000 to begin work on the Assessment and Capacity steps of the SPF. During FY12, counties will receive a $70,000 base and another level of funding dependent on county population based on 2009 Census data. This funding model is an equitable way to distribute additional funding to each county and will provide additional resources to counties with a higher population.
Frequently Asked Questions Q 3. Can a staff member’s time be split with another project? A 3. The expectation is that each county will hire a fulltime FTE to manage all aspects of the SPF SIG Project in the county. The staff may be included in a subcontract. Other situations would need to be clearly justified and approved by IDPH.
Frequently Asked Questions Q 4. Can community specific issues/strategies be funded since this is a county project? A 4. A specific community coalition could be funded with a subcontract to carry out part of the Action Plan only in the specific community so long as over the entire Action Plan appropriate strategies are implemented in the entire county.
Frequently Asked Questions Q 5. Is information available about future years of funding after FY2012? A 5. Future budgets will be dependent on congressional appropriations and approval of any carry over funds. If the SPF SIG would be level funded for FY2013 and FY2014, funding levels may be similar in FY2013 and FY2014 to FY2012 but that is only the best projection for now.
Frequently Asked Questions Q5. When will contract amendments be issued? A5. IDPH will need a letter from each Comprehensive agency stating their intent to participate in the project. Then each county will need to complete their Collaboration Agreement in order to decide the county budget. After a budget is submitted to IDPH, the contract amendment process will begin.
