Additional meals reporting in DEX

CHSP providers should accurately report all outputs delivered under the CHSP in DEX as per normal reporting procedures.This should include outputs delivered through additional COVID-19 meals and ad hoc funding. Where flexibility provisions have been used, the actual services delivered should be reported.

CHSP providers who received emergency support through either an adhoc proposal and/or additional meals funding as part of the CHSP COVID-19 Emergency Support round must also complete the performance report template that was issued with the separate grant agreement. This captures how funds have been spent, including where funding was used to meet COVID-related costs  not associated with additional outputs.

For meals providers, your Funding Arrangement Manager (FAM) will make contact with you to discuss your meals service in coming weeks. Your FAM will ask about demand for meals and your progress in meeting client needs, as well as any other matters you may wish to discuss.
