Description: The Corporation requests reinstatement, with changes, of its National Senior Service Corps Project Progress Report which reflects the Corporation's intention to modify selected sections of the collection instrument to reflect changes in data considered “core reporting” information to meet a variety of needs, including:

  • Modification of data elements, including adding new data elements as needed to ensure information collection captures appropriate data for the Corporation's required performance measurement and other reporting.

The Project Progress Report (PPR) was designed to assure that National Service Corps (NSSC) grantees address and fulfill legislated program purposes, meet agency program management and grant requirements, and assess progress toward work plan objectives agreed upon in the granting of the award.

Further, the reinstatement of the previously used PPR will: (a) Enhance data elements collected via this information collection tool; (b) migrate the paper version of the form to the Corporation's electronic grants management system, eGrants; and (c) establish reporting periods consistent with the Corporation's integrated grants management and reporting policies.

Comments: A 60-day public comment notice, regarding modification of the Project Progress Report was published in the Federal Register on December 5, 2003. This comment period ended on February 5, 2004; no comments were received.
