If it’s not on the VMS list or the projects list… 
If a volunteer activity is not specifically listed by name it is most likely not an approved project. Please do not arbitrarily enter hours for an unapproved project under any code.  This causes us to be flagged during state audits and creates many steps of extra work for your VMS team. Contact us before volunteering to determine if an unlisted project qualifies for reportable hours. Questions? Email the VMS projects manager or VMS Data Manager
