The Native American Programs Act requires ANA to provide, no less than every 3 years, "evaluation of projects . . . including evaluations that describe and measure the impact of such projects, their effectiveness in achieving stated goals, their impact on related programs, and their structure and mechanisms for delivery of services[.]"

The purposes of these evaluations are to:

  • Assess the activities and outcomes of ANA funding in Native communities in accordance with NAPA and the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993;
  • Record the successes and challenges of ANA grantees in order to improve the capacity of ANA grantees; and
  • Produce relevant data on Native American community-driven projects that is useful to Native American leaders, planners, tribal government agencies, and Native American service providers.

To satisfy such requirements, ANA conducts end-of-project evaluations that address two main questions: (1) to what extent did the project meet its established objectives and (2) how does the grantee describe the impact of its project on those intended to benefit within its community? This report addresses these questions.
