Download as PDF pwalker on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 248 / Tuesday, December 29, 2009 / Notices (Legal authority: Section 803(b) and 814 of NAPA, as amended and 42 U.S.C. 2991b–3(b)(7)(C).) Federal Share: Financial assistance provided by ANA in the amount of 80 percent of the approved costs of the project. The Commissioner may approve assistance in excess of such percentage if such action is in furtherance of the purposes of NAPA. Language Restoration Program: An educational program that operates at least one Native American language program for the community in which it serves; provides training programs for teachers of Native American languages; develops instructional materials for the programs; works towards a goal of increasing language proficiency and fluency in at least one Native American language; and provides instruction in at least one Native American language. D. ANA Application Evaluation Criteria: ANA will revise the evaluation criteria throughout all FOAs to simplify what information is being requested from applicants and to allow greater flexibility in applicants’ proposals. The evaluation criteria will be revised to include clear explanations as to how ANA will assess the information provided in the applications. (Legal authority: Section 803(c) of NAPA, as amended.) i. Titles and Assigned Weight: In FY 2010, ANA will reduce the number of evaluation criteria from six to four and adjust the weighted scores to focus on those elements that are important to project success and project monitoring. Weighted sub criteria scores are identified for Criterion 2 only. ANA is proposing generic titles for the criterion to eliminate confusion between the titles of the project content categories and the evaluation criteria. For FY 2010, the criteria will be weighted as follows: Criterion 1—20 points; Criterion 2—50 points; Sub criterion—Project Strategy and Objective Work Plan (OWP)—40 points Sub criterion—Contingency Planning and Sustainability—10 points Criterion 3—15 points; and Criterion 4—15 points. ii. ANA Evaluation Criteria: ANA will simplify what is being evaluated to focus on elements of the proposed project that are important for project success or to monitoring progress. Included here is a summary of each criterion. Each FOA will more fully describe the evaluation criteria. (a) Criterion 1: Under this criterion, applications will be evaluated on the applicant’s connection and commitment to the target community and the need for assistance, as demonstrated by the VerDate Nov<24>2008 19:02 Dec 28, 2009 Jkt 220001 stated problem. The applicant will be asked to identify a problem statement and project goal. (b) Criterion 2: Under this criterion, applications will be evaluated on the strength of the project approach and the applicant’s capacity to implement the project. The applicant will be asked to describe the project strategy, provide the OWP, identify challenges and contingency planning, and demonstrate sustainability of the project. (c) Criterion 3: Under this criterion, the application will be evaluated on the three identified impact indicators, the target numbers and the tracking mechanisms. Two impact indicators, namely partnerships and leveraged resources, are standard for all applications. ANA requests that applicants identify a third impact indicator, which will be used to track how well the project addressed the problem statement. ANA will request baseline data, which is the existing situation at the time of the application, a target situation at the end of the project period, and a target for three years after the end of the project period. (d) Criterion 4: Under this criterion, the application will be evaluated on the strength of the budget and how well it supports successful completion of the project objectives. ANA will request that the applicant present a line-item budget and budget justification for each budget period. The budget justification should tie the budget to the project strategy and should demonstrate the cost effectiveness of the budget. II. Panel Review Process. In accordance with the Department of Health and Human Services Grants Policy Statement, revised in January 2007, applicants may receive a summary of the panel review comments after funding decisions have been made. The comment summaries will assist applicants in compiling improved applications for future funding competitions. (Legal authority: Section 814 of NAPA, as amended.) Dated: December 22, 2009.
