    Comments

    A 60-day Notice requesting public comment was published in the Federal Register on July 18, 2019 at Vol. 84, No. 138. This comment period ended September 16, 2019. No public comments were received from this Notice.

    Title of Collection: Senior Corps Project Progress Report (PPR).

    OMB Control Number: 3045-0033.

    Type of Review: Renewal.

    Respondents/Affected Public: Sponsors of Senior Corps Grants.

    Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 1,100.

    Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 17,600 (Work Plans and narratives, semi-annual: Four hours per response. Progress Report Supplemental, annual: eight hours per response.).

    Abstract: The Progress Report (PPR) was designed to ensure that Senior Corps' programs (RSVP, Foster Grandparent, and Senior Companion Programs) address and fulfill legislated program purposes; meet agency program management and grant requirements; track and measure progress to benefit the local project and its contributions to senior volunteers and the community; and report progress toward work plan objectives agreed upon in the granting of the award. The resulting data is used by grantees and CNCS to track performance and inform continued grant funding support, as well as to identify trends and to support management and analysis. CNCS seeks to renew and revise current OMB approved PPR to align with recent national performance measures changes and to remove administrative burdens. CNCS also seeks to continue using the current tool until the revised application is approved by OMB. The current tool is due to expire on December 31, 2019.
