For the most up to date information, or if you have any questions, please contact your Program Specialist or e-mail ANAComments@acf.hhs.gov.
Objective Progress Report (OPR)
This is an OMB approved form used by ANA grantees to report semi-annual project progress. The submission of timely OPRs is a requirement of all grant awards and is one of the most important factors taken into consideration when deciding to continue grant funding. ANA program specialists review these reports against the approved application’s Objective Work Plan and budget and track the implementation of your project. Grantees that are late on these required reports or delayed in implementing the project will jeopardize continuation funding. Furthermore, consistent delinquency can result in actions taken by ANA, such as requiring reporting on a more frequent basis or changing the award to reimbursement rather than advance.
The GrantSolutions Grants Management Module (GMM) and Online Data Collection (OLDC) provide a convenient way for grantees to submit their Objective Progress Report (OPR). Grantees use the OLDC system to enter, validate, certify, submit, and retrieve information pertinent to their OPR. Note: In order to initiate the OPR, the Objective Work Plan (OWP) must first be available in the system. Please email or call your ANA point of contact with any questions.
In what format should you send your OPRs?
ANA utilizes the Online Data Collection System (OLDC) Visit disclaimer page (View disclaimer page) through GrantSolutions (grantsolutions.gov) for the submission of your OPR. To submit your OPR please go to GrantSolutions to access your grant file. Once you have gained access to your grant, please click on the Online Data Collection on the top horizontal tool bar.
What information is required?
Each report must provide a project status on all funded objectives and activities and track the progress of the project impact indicators. The OPR must also indicate any project challenges or if there are any exceptions to the approved project approach.
Grantees must respond to ALL questions listed on the form.
Where do you send your reports?
As stated above, your OPR is entered online via OLDC/GrantSolutions. You are not required to send a copy of your OPR to ANA or OGM.
Annual Data Report (ADR)
In addition to the Objective Progress Report (OPR) (OMB No. 0970-0452, expiration date 06/30/2018) to be filled out in the Online Data Collection (OLDC)/GrantSolutions system, ANA grantees are required to report project progress using the Annual Data Report (ADR) [OMB No. 0970-0475, expiration date: 03/31/2019] to report project data once a year and at the end of the project period.
