1. Question:  If a provider currently has contracts for Quality Administrator, Integrated Health, Transition Coordination and Resident Review, will the process be same this year?  Or do we also submit a full narrative request?  These programs are currently listed under competitive grants. Last year we only filed the Grant Application form and did not submit a narrative as outlined in the Notice of Funding.

      Answer:  All the programs listed above are being competitively bid in FY19 and you will need to follow the instructions listed in the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). So to answer your questions. No, the process is different this year. Yes, you will need to submit a full narrative.
