Title: Compassion Capital Fund Evaluation—Initial Outcome Study.
OMB No.: New Collection.
Description: This proposed information collection activity is for an initial outcome study that is one component of the evaluation of the Compassion Capital Fund (CCF) program. The information collection will be through mailed surveys to be completed by selected faith-based and community organizations that received sub-awards from CCF grantees. The CCF grantees are intermediary organizations that provide capacity building services to faith-based and community organizations.
The CCF evaluation is an important opportunity to examine the outcomes and effectiveness of the Compassion Capital Fund in meeting its objective of improving the capacity of faith-based and community organizations. This initial outcome study component of the evaluation will involve approximately 180 faith-based and community organizations. Information will be sought from these organizations to assess change and improvement in various areas of capacity resulting from receipt of sub-awards.
Respondents: The respondents will be selected faith-based and community organizations that received sub-awards in 2003 from nine selected CCF intermediary grantees. The surveys will be self-administered.
