Attention Providers of Block Grant-Funded Programs: Fiscal Year 2018 Review

The State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2018 annual monitoring of State and Federally-Funded Services is currently underway.

Any provider that has gotten paid under any of the following programs:

  • SAPTBG Work First/CPS
  • SAPTBG Set Aside Program for Women Who are Pregnant, Who have Dependent Children, and are Seeking Custody of Children (WASF)

may be subject to the audit and may be required to be present at the Systems Review with consumer records.

The Systems Review is scheduled for:

Date: Wednesday, July 18, 2018
Location: Partners Behavioral Health Management
1985 Tate Blvd. SE (Basement Multipurpose Room)
Hickory NC, 28602

The review will include programs funded by the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant (SAPTBG), the Community Mental Health Services Block Grant (CMHSBG) and the Social Services Block Grant (SSBG).  The review will consist of program and clinical monitoring.

Partners will receive consumer record numbers ten days prior to the audit date. At that time, providers will be alerted to whether they will need to be present at the audit and which records will be reviewed.
