Frequently Asked Questions

The FAQ page lists frequently asked questions received through webinars, the Title X conference, and through emails to OPA and TA vendors. This page will be updated frequently and will serve as a resource for grantees and data system vendors.

Technical Assistance

OPA and its contractors will provide comprehensive technical assistance (TA) using a collaborative and coordinated approach to help grantees transition to the new FPAR 2.0 data system. These activities include group and individualized technical assistance to end users of the system via formal trainings, written materials, and other documentation. TA materials and assistance is available to grantees, subrecipients, and EHR vendors. Note, only grantees will have access to submit data, so we encourage ongoing coordination between grantees and their partners.

  • Inquiries regarding the data system, data elements, implementation guide, waiver process, or FAQs can be submitted to the help desk with a cc to your federal project officer.
