11/16/20 - A Message to Providers from Secretary Hou: New Tool for the IDHS Grant Application Process

Monday, November 16, 2020

Dear Stakeholders,

I'm pleased to announce a new tool to help organizations across Illinois successfully comply with the Grant Accountability and Transparency Act (GATA).

The IDHS Grant Accountability and Transparency Act (GATA) Technical Assistance (TA) Learning Management System (LMS) was developed to provide technical assistance and navigation of the Grant Accountability and Transparency Act and the grant application process.

The system is available for self-paced online learning, with an instructor in a physical classroom or in a virtual classroom online. It includes six modules and the estimated time to complete all modules is approximately 24 hours.

The weblink for self-paced online learning is available at no cost on the IDHS website under the "Providers" tab, on the "Provider Information" section.

Questions and Assistance:

Assistance with the system may be obtained by using the "Get Support" tab located under "Tools" on the GATA TA LMS launch page.

Questions and assistance with the subject matter content may be addressed by your grant program point of contact or via email: DHS.GATATraining@illinois.gov

Thank you,

Grace B. Hou

Secretary, IDHS
