Our priority is to support you and provide stable operating funding without delays. You will not be expected to have replacement programming for time lost due to COVID-19. Please note that your second quarter payment on April 30, 2020 will not be delayed, regardless of whether there is missing information in your 2020 Funding Submission. Staff will continue to work with you to collect this information at a later date.
