Please find below the approved Emergency Support Services Direct Payment Guidance effective April 23 until updated or rescinded.

The Direct Payment Guidelines was created to support teams in responding in the COVID environment which allows teams a range of supplier options and flexibility. It’s important to note that supports must still be in line with the ESS Program parameters and ESS Rate Sheet and pre-approvals are required from EMBC to use this Direct Payment option.

This document along with the ESS Alternative Guidelines will be posted on the EMBC COVID 19 FAQ page soon.
