Start Preamble

Title: Administration for Native Americans Annual Data Collection.

OMB No.: New.

Description: Content and formatting changes are being made to the Objective Progress Report (OPR). Content changes are being made to the OPR, now known as the Annual Data Collection (ADC) previously approved under information collection OMB No. 0980-0204. ANA has determined that the requirement for ANA grantees to submit information about the project activities on quarterly basis creates undue burden for Grantees. Therefore, ANA has reformatted the OPR to require Grantees submit and annual report instead of quarterly report when reporting on partnerships, youth and elder engagement, impact indicators, community involvement etc. This will reduce the administrative burden on Grantees, especially the smaller organizations. The majority of content being requested from the grantees essentially remain same except for the frequency of reporting. The other sections of the document with reference to “quarterly” information will be changed to reflect the shift from four-times a year reporting requirement to once per year and once at the end of the project period.

Respondents: Tribal Government, Native non-profit organizations, Tribal Colleges & Universities receiving ANA funding.

The following is the hour of burden estimate for this information collection:
