Yes, Please list the specific languages (other than English) in q.22 and q.23, rather than providing a numerical value.
Report the number of grant-funded, unsolicited letters, phone calls, or visits to victims/survivors of sexual assault. These “outreach activities” should be for the purpose of informing them of services and/or providing information. Also report the specific languages (other than English) used in these outreach activities.
For this scenario, prorate agency outreach totals to only reflect how much of that staff person’s time in grant-funded. For example, if a full-time outreach advocate is 50% SASP-CS grant funded, report half of that staff person’s total outreach activities in q.23.
Not necessarily. Only report grant-funded unsolicited outreach activities in q.23. If 100% of the unsolicited outreach activities are funded by the SASP-CS grant, then do report the agency’s total number of outreach letters in q.23. If SASP-CS grant funds make up a piece of the agency’s budget for unsolicited outreach activities, in q.23 only report the percent of the agency’s total number of outreach letters that is supported by SASP-CS grant funds.
Here is an example of prorating outreach activities to report only what is grant funded: A full-time outreach advocate is 50% SASP-CS grant-funded. This outreach advocate mailed 1,000 unsolicited letters offering information about support services during the reporting period. Because this advocate is 50% grant funded, prorate the total number of unsolicited outreach activities conducted to 50%. In this example, 500 unsolicited letters are reported in q.23.
• If grant-funded staff are answering the hotline, or supervising volunteers who answer the hotline, you would report all hotline calls handled by the grant-funded staff and/or the volunteers they supervise.
• If grant funds support a portion of the hotline budget, prorate your agency’s total hotline calls to reflect what portion or percent of hotline calls that grant funds support.
