Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 246 / Thursday, December 22, 2016 / Notices ‘‘other explanations’’ narrative will only be used to collect information specified in the GPR instructions, primarily narrative responses that exceed character limits in other narrative fields in the electronic reporting system. Category 7: Previous GPR Instructions. CNCS received one comment on the previous version of the GPR instructions. Response: The current information collection replaces the previous version of the GPR instructions. This comment is therefore outside the scope of the information request. Category 8: GPR Processes. Four comments addressed GPR-related processes that are not part of the information collection itself. Two commenters stated that the GPR duplicates information collected in past performance and recommendation summaries required as part of the grant application process. Three commenters suggested that CNCS provide a list of GPR reporting requirements in the grant Terms & Conditions. One commenter recommended that there be one GPR for multiple prime grants in a state. One commenter recommended that CNCS make changes to its electronic reporting system so that grant amendments do not interfere with completion and submission of the GPR. Response: These comments are outside the scope of the information request. CNCS has attempted to address incomplete GPR data by requesting additional data during the application process. Data collection will remain in the GPR; however, comments will be shared with the application planning team. CNCS will add a list of GPR reporting requirements to the grant Terms & Conditions. In the current electronic reporting system it is not possible to aggregate data from multiple prime grants awarded in one state, but this is a goal for the reporting system currently under development. CNCS is currently pursuing changes to the existing electronic reporting system to address the issue of grant amendments that interfere with completion and submission of the GPR. Category 9: Timing. One comment was received concerning the timing of off-cycle performance measure data. Some programs may collect performance measure data after the GPR reporting period has ended, and one commenter recommended that CNCS develop a more useful way to collect offcycle performance measure data. Response: CNCS will revise guidance about how to report off-cycle performance measure data in subsequent GPRs or the final GPR. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:40 Dec 21, 2016 Jkt 241001 Description: CNCS requires grantees of AmeriCorps State and National, School Turnaround AmeriCorps, Commission Support Grant, Commission Investment Funds, and the Volunteer Generation Fund to submit Grantee Progress Reports (GPRs).

Agency: Corporation for National and Community Service. Title: AmeriCorps State and National Grantee Progress Report OMB Number: TBD. Agency Number: None. Affected Public: Grantees of AmeriCorps State and National, School Turnaround AmeriCorps, Commission Support Grant, Commission Investment Funds, and Volunteer Generation Fund. Total Respondents: 300 total respondents for AmeriCorps State and National and School Turnaround AmeriCorps. 52 respondents each for Commission Support Grants and Commission Investment Funds. 20 respondents for Volunteer Generation Fund. Frequency: Semiannual for AmeriCorps State and National and School Turnaround AmeriCorps operational grants with an additional final GPR at the end of the award period. Annual for Volunteer Generation Fund, Commission Support Grant and Commission Investment Funds. Average Time Per Response: 11 hours for AmeriCorps GPRs. 10 hours for all other GPRs.
