Abstract: The Office of Adolescent Health (OAH), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is requesting approval by OMB on a new collection. In FY2015, OAH expects to award a second 5-year cohort of TPP grants. Performance Measure data collection is a requirement of all TPP grant awards and is included in the funding announcements. The measures include dissemination, partners, training, health-care linkages, sustainability, reach, dosage, fidelity, quality, and cost, reported separately by grantee/sub grantee and program model.

L. 103-62); it will inform stakeholders of progress in meeting the goals of the program and of sustainability efforts; and it will provide OAH with metrics for monitoring TPP grantees and will facilitate grantees' continuous quality improvement in program implementation.
Likely Respondents: 137 TPP grantees and sub-grantees.
