Reporting is Required to Ensure Funding Requirements Are Met

The following components of the CFO Contract and individual subcontracts is vital for success. It also allows us to stay in compliance with our funder, the California Department of Social Services (CDSS).

For the FFY 2022-2024 Contract, we have streamlined and modernized a number of components to ensure Subcontractors have the tools and support to meet Contract Requirements, Fiscal Reporting, and Program Reporting deadlines throughout the duration of the contract.

Please reach out to your CHC Program Manager or Fiscal Analyst if you have questions.
