Jan Campbell
27:03
is the VOC report due at the same time as the financial reports?
Cordelia Leoncio (she/her)
27:31
If the funds are not used toward direct services (e.g., are used for staff hazard pay and technology only), do we still need to provide client information in that awful-sounding spreadsheet?
Alison Tudor
27:36
Would hotel rooms purchased for clients (not vouchers) need to be taken out of the indirect calculation?
Andi Grote
29:20
It sounded like you said we COULD pre-pay things like hotel rooms and gift cards, but based on the reporting requirements, those would need to be entirely distributed/used before July 31, correct?
Ricardo Forbes
29:20
Will more funding be disbursed for shelter than for the other allowable costs?
Jan Campbell
29:46
Thank you!
Mark Kuntz
29:47
If motel vouchers are purchased, but used after July 31, do we only report on the purchase of the vouchers since we have not client data at that point?
Patricia Bidar
30:40
Is the awful spreadsheet part of the application, or part of the reporting?
Julianna Lee
31:34
Can we use the funds for developing and printing informational/advocacy materials (e.g., pamphlets) for DV survivors that include COVID-related changes?
Melissa Hellums/Sister to Sister 2 dba Serenity House
31:48
Last year was our first year to do the Awful Spreadsheet”, it wasn’t as difficult as I thought, and your team was very helpful in answering our questions
Alison Tudor
32:25
We have incurred costs due to hotel room damages. Can this funding cover that?
Julianna Lee
33:05
Thank you!
Pablo Espinoza
33:29

"awful spreadsheet" sorry for starting that - I think - ? :D
Patricia Bidar
34:55
sorry if missed: is the client spreadsheet part of applying, or reporting?
Alison Tudor
35:21
Would hotel rooms purchased for clients (not vouchers) need to be taken out of the indirect calculation?
Cordelia Leoncio (she/her)
35:56
I'm sorry: Did I miss the response to Mark's question above? If motel vouchers are purchased, but used after July 31, do we only report on the purchase of the vouchers since we have not client data at that point?
Mary Ellen Mitchell

41:22
Can we pay for zoom annual costs that go past 7/31 but we paid for it before 7/31?
Melissa Hellums/Sister to Sister 2 dba Serenity House
42:33
To echo Allison’s question, we typically have been paying the hotel directly rather than purchasing vouchers, can we include this as a direct cost?
Melissa (She-her)
43:17
@melissa yes

Was the question someone asked regarding funds for rental assistance answered already? Apologies I think I missed the answer. for example, could we include funds for rental assistance for women we place in emergency hotel rooms, once we locate housing for them?
Jan Campbell
48:38
this is great - thank you so much!
Elizabeth Vermilyea
50:54

Erin Scott
