2020 State Flex Profile

It is that time of year once again to update your State Flex Profiles. This year, TASC will use information from the End of Year Report you submitted to the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy to update your State Flex Profile. If you chose to opt-out of allowing TASC to use your end of report information, we ask that you please complete the following form to provide the information to update your state’s profile.

Peer sharing is a powerful tool! Many of you have expressed interest in becoming more familiar with the Flex activities of other states, and now is the time to share information about the great work you are doing. The State Flex Profiles are some of the most frequently accessed pages on the TASC website. Key partners and the public also want to know about all the fantastic work you are doing to benefit the rural communities in your state through the Flex Program!

Please complete your State Flex Profile by February 2, 2021. After review by TASC, each state's updated profile will be accessible and printable from the TASC website.

Instructions

Some questions are similar to last year. In order to make this process easier, you may want to copy and paste some of your information from last year’s profile and/or from your work plan and make changes as necessary. To view your existing Flex state profile, choose your state from the list on the Flex State Profiles page.

This form does not allow you to save your progress. Please look over the form and be sure you have all the information before filling it out. Please complete the form in its entirety. The more details you include, the more critical information you will be providing another Flex Coordinator who may wish to engage in similar work.

Please spell out acronyms and abbreviations the first time they are introduced.

If you have questions about this form, please contact Andy Naslund at anaslund@ruralcenter.org or (218) 216-7030.
