Proposed Projects

Title: Objective Work Plan (OWP), Objective Progress Report (OPR) and Project Abstract.

OMB No.: 0980-0204.

Description: The information collected by OWP is needed to properly administer and monitor the Administration for Native Americans (ANA) programs within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF). OWP assists applicants in describing their project's objectives and activities, and also assists independent panel reviewer's, ANA staff and the ANA Commissioner during the review and funding decision process. The information in OPR is being collected on a quarterly basis to monitor the performance of grantees and better gauge grantee progress. The standardized format will allow ANA to report results across all its program areas and flag grantees that may need additional training and/or technical assistance to successfully implement their projects. The Project Abstract provides crucial information in a concise format that it utilized by applicants, independent reviewers, ANA staff and the ANA Commissioner.

Respondents: Tribal Govt., Native non-profits, Tribal Colleges & Universities.
