Background

The AFI Act (Title IV of the Community Opportunities, Accountability, and Training and Educational Services Act of 1998, Pub.L. 105-285, [42 U.S.C. § 604 note]) requires that organizations operating AFI projects submit annual progress reports. Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, federal agencies must seek approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to collect information from the public.

Policy Summary

OCS is reducing the frequency of collecting the AFI program-specific Performance Progress Report (PPR) [OMB Control Number: 0970-0483; Expiration date: 08/31/2019]. The AFI PPR will now be collected semiannually rather than quarterly.
