Mobile and Online Data Collection

Use DTAC’s online data collection system and mobile app to upload your Crisis Counseling Assistance and Training Program (CCP) data.

The CCP Online Data Collection and Evaluation System and CCP Mobile Data Collection App are data collection tools for Crisis Counseling Assistance and Training Program (CCP) encounter data. These tools also allow users who enter data to generate reports in a variety of formats.

Before using the mobile application, refer to the Guidance for Mobile Application Use in the Crisis Counseling Assistance and Training Program (PDF | 386 KB) for a complete overview of the mobile app budget, staffing and technology requirements. The mobile application for CCP data collection is designed to enhance and streamline the process of data entry and reduce the lag time between data collection and its availability to CCP staff and federal partners.
