AOD Budget and Claims Technical Assistance Training

With the beginning of another fiscal year coming soon, we would like to see if any of our providers are interested in attending a Budget and Claims Technical Assistance Training. The focus of the training is to show how to fill out the various available templates, common areas that County Fiscal analysts usually review, and common errors that may be found during the review. The training is expected to last an hour.

If you are interested, please send an e-mail to Lorna Amarila at If we have enough interested parties, we will set up a group training schedule. If only a few are interested, we will contact you to arrange for a one-on-one training. 

Thank you.
