Abstract: This is a revision of the Child Care Access Means Parent in School Program (CCAMPIS) Annual Performance Report (APR) which grantees must submit annually. The report provides the Department of Education with information needed to evaluate a grantee's performance and compliance with program requirements in accordance with the program authorizing statute. The data collected is aggregated to provide national information on project participants and the results demonstrated by program outcomes. The burden hours are increased due to additional queries that have been added to the APR that capture more specific data needed to enhance the understanding of results demonstrated by this program in accordance with Office of Management and Budget mandates.
