ARPA Discretionary Bonuses

Focus is happy to announce bonuses coming to you!!!  

 

We began reviewing eligibility for American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding and making Discretionary Bonus payments to Waiver employees starting with the 10/7/22 payroll.  

 

Due to differing review periods, payment amounts may not be consistent in amount or in dates of payment.  These payments must be taxed as a Bonus as they are not related to your normal service provision hours. Payments will be made until all available funding is exhausted.  The Discretionary Bonus payments will be paid out as a separate Direct Deposit and you will see a 2nd Paystub in Paylocity for any pay period in which you receive a bonus. 

 

We were excited to get bonuses out to you in October and November!!


The December bonus is scheduled to be deposited 12/16/22.


HOWEVER, if you are not in compliance with ALL trainings completed and submitted required documents by DECEMBER 9th, you will not receive the December bonus and it will not be available as retro pay once training is complete.  (What this means- you have one shot to get everything in by Dec. 9th or you will completely miss the December bonus). 


Please check your email for due Relias trainings, CPI trainings, and needed required documents. Also, check with your supervisor to see if anything else is needed.

 

Thank you for being a part of the Focus Team and serving our families. We appreciate you! 

Therap

We are in full swing using Therap for our daily notes and for communication regarding our individuals. Some are still having trouble, as there is much to learn. We are working on a training class for those that need the extra help getting the hang of it. Until then, there are some things we can share to help out here. 


Suggestions?

 Many have asked, and here it is!  We now have a suggestions box!

We know how hard it is to sometimes communicate our frustrations, concerns, and ideas.

We want to bring you more ways to communicate with us at the office! 

Suggestions can be left anonymously, or with contact information, if you choose to do so.
