Guidance, Policies, Procedures, Tools

Draft recommendations for Federal performance measures were developed by the Urban Institute and the DSA after several meetings with the CSBG Performance Management Task Force, and feedback from the field.  The draft recommended performance measures reflect the primary responsibilities of DSA and include approximately 15 measures.  Eight of the performance measures have been identified as “critical key measures” and, therefore, to be implemented first.


OCS requests further input from the States to refine and identify priority measures for the States.  We request that the States provide feedback about what State measures should be designated as “critical key measures” to be implemented in the short-term.  Feedback should be provided to the Urban Institute at CSBG-Feedback@Urban.org
