OMB No.: 0970–0386. Description: The Office of Community Services (OCS) will continue collecting key information about projects funded through the Community Economic Development (CED) program. The legislative requirement for this program is in Title IV of the Community Opportunities, Accountability and Training and Educational Services Act (COATS Human Services Reauthorization Act) of October 27, 1998, Public Law 105–285, section 680(b) as amended. The reporting format, Performance Progress Report (PPR), collects information concerning the outcomes and management of CED projects.

Grantees will be required to use this reporting tool for their semiannual reports to be submitted twice a year. The current PPR replaced both the annual questionnaire and other semiannual reporting formats, which resulted in an overall reduction in burden for the grantees while significantly improving the quality of the data collected by OCS. OCS seeks to renew this PPR to continue to collect quality data from grantees. To ensure the burden on grantees is not increased, all questions on the current PPR will remain the same—we propose adding only one question to the PPR regarding the total number of jobs grantees are creating with grant funds. Many grantees have asked about this element on the current PPR and currently do not have a place to report that information. This is information that most grantees are already collecting. Adding this field will allow grantees to provide this information in a consistent format and allow OCS to more accurately reflect the total number of jobs created through the CED program. Since grantees are already familiar with the current format and elements, and all questions on the PPR will remain the same (with one added question based on grantee feedback), there will be no additional burden on grantees.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: Renewal of Office of Community Services (OCS) Community 
Economic Development (CED) Standard Reporting Format.
    OMB No.: 0970-0386.
    Description: The Office of Community Services (OCS) will continue 
collecting key information about projects funded through the Community 
Economic Development (CED) program. The legislative requirement for 
this program is in Title IV of the Community Opportunities, 
Accountability and Training and Educational Services Act (COATS Human 
Services Reauthorization Act) of October 27, 1998, Public Law 105-285, 
section 680(b) as amended. The reporting format, Performance Progress 
Report (PPR), collects information concerning the outcomes and 
management of CED projects. OCS will use the data to critically review 
the overall design and effectiveness of the program.
    The PPR will continue to be administered to all active grantees of 
the CED program. Grantees will be required to use this reporting tool 
for their semi-annual reports to be submitted twice a year. The current 
PPR replaced both the annual questionnaire and other semi-annual 
reporting formats, which resulted in an overall reduction in burden for 
the grantees while significantly improving the quality of the data 
collected by OCS. OCS seeks to renew this PPR to continue to collect 
quality data from grantees. To ensure the burden on grantees is not 
increased, all questions on the current PPR will remain the same--we 
propose adding only one question to the PPR regarding the total number 
of jobs grantees are creating with grant funds. Many grantees have 
asked about this element on the current PPR and currently do not have a 
place to report that information. This is information that most 
grantees are already collecting. Adding this field will allow grantees 
to provide this information in a consistent format and allow OCS to 
more accurately reflect the total number of jobs created through the 
CED program. Since grantees are already familiar with the current 
format and elements, and all questions on the PPR will remain the same 
(with one added question based on grantee feedback), there will be no 
additional burden on grantees.
    Respondents: Current CED grantees.
