Start Preamble

Proposed Projects:

Title: ANA Project Impact Assessment Survey.

OMB No.: New Collection.

Description: The information collected by the Project Impact Assessment Survey is needed for two main reasons:

(1) To collect crucial information required to report on the Administration for Native Americans' (ANA) established Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) measures, and

(2) To properly abide by ANA's congressionally-mandated statute (42 United States Code 2991 et seq.) found within the Native American Programs Act of 1974, as amended, which states that ANA will evaluate projects assisted through ANA grant dollars “including evaluations that describe and measure the impact of such projects, their effectiveness in achieving stated goals, their impact on related programs, and their structure and mechanisms for delivery of services.” The information collected with this survey will fulfill ANA's statutory requirement and will also serve as an important planning and performance tool for ANA.

Respondents: Tribal Governments, Native American nonprofit organizations, and Tribal Colleges and Universities.
