SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, ACL has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance.

The Older Americans Act (OAA) requires annual program performance reports from States, the District of Columbia, and Territories. In compliance with this OAA provision, ACL developed a SPR in 1996 as part of its National Aging Program Information System (NAPIS). The SPR collects information about how State Agencies on Aging expend their OAA funds as well as funding from other sources for OAA authorized supportive services. The SPR also collects information on the demographic and functional status of the recipients, and is a key source for ACL performance measurement.

ACL is requesting approval from OMB to continue collecting data after expiration on 12/31/2019. This is a revision request to the 2016 approved version of the Reporting Requirements for Title III and VII State Program Report Definitions. The currently approved version of the State Program Report (SPR) includes language intended for usage in FY 2023. Since these data elements are not required for usage until FY 2023, under the Paperwork Reduction Act ACL is required to update the information collection (IC) to contain only the language and requirements for collection years 2020-2023. Removing the proposed FY 2023 language from the currently approved SPR causes a revision to OMB 0985-0008. ACL intends to seek OMB approval under a new OMB control number for the FY 2023-2026 data elements allowing usage of 0985-0008 until the new IC is approved and ready for usage.
