Reporting of Community Health Workers in the Uniform Data System

2019-07-12T13:30:08+00:00

With Community Health Workers (CHWs) identified as a unique staffing category in the Uniform Data System (UDS) for the first time in 2016, the number of FTEs reported has been much lower than expected (879 FTEs across 1367 grantees).

These inconsistencies may reflect unclear guidance on how to accurately identify and report the work of CHWs.
