    Published: August 12, 2013
    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.

  • AFI Resource Guide: Building Financial Capability

    Published: March 26, 2015
    Building Financial Capability: A Planning Guide for Integrated Services (available for download below), is an interactive guide for community-based organizations interested in integrating financial capability services into existing programs (e.g. housing, job training, or Head Start). The interactive tools in the guide walk organizations step-by-step through the process of developing an integration plan, beginning with developing a deeper understanding of clients’ financial circumstances and which financial capability services can help them improve their situations. The guide also includes tools to help organizations determine how best to provide financial capability services—whether through referrals, partnerships, or in-house. The final step in the process is the creation of a logic model that serves as a comprehensive roadmap for implementing the integration plan. Building Financial Capability is a practical resource for organizations providing financial capability services for the first time as well as those that want to improve or expand existing efforts. Since this resource was published, the links to tools in the PDF no longer work. In order to access all the tools, go to https://prosperitynow.org/tools-building-financial-capability-plannin.... To learn more about the guide, view the associated training video series.

  • AFI Tools: Optional Narrative Template for PPRs

    Published: June 2, 2017
    NOTE: See the AFI PPR Overview page for additional information. The AFI PPR is set up in OLDC to allow grantees to upload an optional narrative file to field 10 on the Cover Page. Grantees are encouraged to use the optional narrative to explain their AFI PPR data, particularly in cases in which the data may look like it is incorrect, such as a reduction from a prior report in a cumulative field. The OLDC system generates warning messages for situations that are unexpected, so if you get warning messages on your AFI PPR and you confirm that your data is correct, we recommend explaining that data in the narrative. Additionally, grantees may want to use the narrative to: Provide additional details about your AFI grant that will help AFI program staff understand how the project operates, current successes, and current challenges. Share the story of a successful partnership that shows how AFI can leverage the work of other organizations, or of a successful participant that shows the impact AFI can have of for an individual or family. The Office of Community Services (OCS) has created optional templates that grantees can use for the narrative file. These templates (available for download below) follow the structure of the AFI PPR forms and include areas for grantees to input key data, such as grant number.
