Automated Search of Commitments
Once a packet (the Form 466 or 466-A along with all required supporting documentation) has been approved, the HCP and the service provider will receive a Funding Commitment Letter (FCL) to outline the approved RHC funding commitment. The letters are emailed weekly.
About Automated Search of Commitments
This search tool will generate a report showing the funding year, state, applicant name, services requested, FCL date, address, city, and committed amount. The information you enter into the search fields will be used to filter out the records you do not want and include the ones you do.
Instructions for Using Automated Search of Commitments
To determine the status of your funding commitment, follow these instructions:
Select a Fund Year
To select Funding Year click the small down arrow on the right. You may choose only one at a time. The drop-down list that appears will display the funding years for you to search. This is a required field. For example, selecting 2000 in the Funding Year field will limit your results to only those applicants committed funds in Funding Year 2000.
Enter an Applicant Name
To search for specific applicants by name, you may enter the entire name or just the first few characters. If your search produces no results for an applicant that you know was committed funds, there are no applicants meeting all that you specified in your search. Try searching again with fewer criteria to make your search more general. Hint: To find a particular applicant name, use less characters.
Search for Applicants by State
Creating a state report is easy! Just select a year and scroll through the state list to find the state you want. You may choose only one at a time. Click Find to view all applicants in that state. To select all states, simply leave the default selection to "All".
Search for Recently Funded Applicants
You may search for applicants funded within the last 30, 60, or 90 days. The default selection pulls all applicants funded in that year.
Search for Applicants by City
To find all committed applicants within a particular city, first fill in the required fund year and state fields, then enter the name of the city. You do not have to enter the full name, especially if you want a broader search. Or if you are unsure about the spelling of a city name, enter just the first letter.
For example, to find applicants in SANTA BARBARA, SAN JOSE or SANTA MARIA, type SAN in the City field. Your results will be applicants located in a city beginning with those letters.
Search for Applicants by ZIP
You can narrow down your results even further by specifying a 5-digit ZIP Code. The resulting report will contain all applicants located in that ZIP Code.
