Title: Performance Progress Report (PPR).
OMB No.: New Collection.
Description: This report will be used to establish a uniform format for reporting performance on grants and cooperative agreements issued by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and its partners. In addition to allowing for uniformity of information collection, this report will support systematic electronic collection and submission of information. This report will provide interim and final performance progress information as required by OMB Circulars A-102 and A-110. Also, the PPR will allow for the measurement of performance, implement Public Law 106-107, and the President's Management Agenda.
The PPR consists of a cover page and six optional forms. The cover page contains identifying data elements and a section for a performance narrative. Use of the cover page is mandatory, and programs may simply require their respondents to submit this page and attach a performance narrative, or, programs may require the cover page and one or more of the six optional forms.
Respondents: ACF and ACF Partner Grantees.
