Comments A 60-day Notice requesting public comment was published in the Federal Register on July 10, 2013. This comment period ended September 9, 2013.

We have addressed these comments in the following ways. First, only first year grantees will submit progress reports quarterly. All other grantees will submit reports on a biannual basis. Second, we will not be collecting performance measures by subgrantees and will continue to collect performance measures in aggregate by the intermediary. Finally, grantees will no longer submit performance measures via the project plan in eGrants, but will provide that information in one place in the data supplement, preventing duplication per the concerns of the commenter.
