Comments in Response to the 60-Day Federal Register Notice

    A notice published in the Federal Register on April 1, 2021 in 86 
FR 17152. There was one public comment received during the 60-day FRN.
    Public comment indicated the performance measures are useful in 
addressing impact and the burden hour for template completion was a 
reasonable estimate. The respondent did indicate the need to streamline 
some of the narrative reporting for ease of use. ACL will explore this 
through additional grantee guidance and development of a web-based 
reporting platform with user-friendly features, such as data cloning 
and other such efficient features.

Estimated Program Burden

    ACL estimates the burden associated with this collection of 
information as follows: The total estimated hour burden per respondent 
for the proposed DD Council PPR is 172 burden hours per response. The 
number of hours to complete the PPR multiplied by 56 State Council 
programs, results in a total estimated annual burden of 9,632. The 
burden is reflective of performance measures introduced in the FFY 
2017-2021 state plan cycle. These measures hone in on individual and 
family advocacy, as well as systems change advocacy. One example of 
these measures is a reporting of the number of promising and/or best 
practices improved based on results of systems change activities. The 
PPR is an opportunity for Councils to report on the actual data and 
outcomes that resulted from carrying out the new State Plan activities. 
This extension was previously pilot tested by a Performance Measures 
Workgroup consisting of nine (9) State Council representatives. This 
workgroup deemed the PPR necessary to accurately capture and report on 
the progress of the State Councils. A separate workgroup consisting of 
nine (9) different State Council representatives further discussed data 
collection methodologies as it relates to the proposed PPR template. 
This PPR offers a comprehensive categorization and approach to 
collecting data necessary to report to Congress and other interested 
entities.
