TOP makes matching grants to state, local and tribal governments, non-profit health care providers, schools, libraries, public safety providers, and non-profit community-based, faith-based organizations, national organizations and associations, museums, colleges, universities, or other providers of social services. In order to ensure TOP’s ability to assess the performance of its grants program and to comply with the Government Performance and Results Act, NTIA will collect and analyze quantitative and qualitative data relating to start-up documentation, quarterly and annual progress, and close-out documentation on TOP-funded projects. NTIA seeks a mechanism whereby it can evaluate the impacts of its projects on an ongoing basis, monitor grants more efficiently and effectively, and provide timely technical assistance to grant recipients. To enable the Program to monitor and to analyze the impacts of the funded projects, TOP seeks to incorporate standardized quantitative and qualitative data elements into an online structured reporting system. The reporting system will include a set of core data elements that apply to all projects. NTIA is interested in the effects that the funded projects are having at the local level and, over the long term, at the national level. It is NTIA’s intention to understand the nature and degree of those effects on the organizations implementing the projects, other organizations that are involved with the projects, the individuals who are served by the projects, and the community as a whole. II. Method of Collection Data will be collected through the use of automated collection techniques. The information collection instrument to be used for this study will include a webbased structured reporting system for both quantitative and qualitative project information. III. Data OMB Number: 0660–0015. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Regular submission. Affected Public: State and local government, and non-profit institutions. Estimated Number of Respondents: 50.
