Introduction to new funding formula
Introduction to new funding formula

History of funding formula

  • In September 2002, the OAG brought together 25 ED’s from all areas of Texas: Rural and Urban, Dual and Stand-Alone, Large and Small, to offer ideas regarding a new funding formula.

  • The workgroup met 3 times to develop a funding formula that would be balanced and fair to the various sexual assault programs.

  • Implementation of formula FY2005.


New funding formula
New Funding Formula

  • Base =

    • $50,000 for existing programs

    • $40,000 for new programs

      +

  • 50% Crisis Intervention, Counseling & Accompaniments (Face-to-Face services)

  • 25% Education (Presentation instead of Participants)

  • 15% Telephone Services

  • 10% OAG discretion =

    Base + 100% Services =Funding


Definitions
Definitions

  • For the new funding formula the workgroup wanted to clear definitions that each program would use in a consistent way.

  • A definitions sub-committee was formed with representatives from SA programs, TAASA, (including the TAASA Board President), the OAG.

  • The sub-committee met 3 times and approved the definitions that will be implemented 9/1/03.


Face to face vs telephone services
Face-to-Face vs. Telephone Services

All services should be entered as either Face-to-Face or Telephone Services.

Telephone services are:

* Sexual Assault Hotline Call (incoming)

* Crisis Intervention (outgoing)

* Hotline Calls & Other Services-

Sexual Abuse.


Recording services
Recording Services

For the purpose of OAG funding, all services will be counted as UNITS. Though you can still record the services by time spent, the queries used to collect data for funding purposes will only recognize that the service was provided, not how long it took to provide the service.
