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

On August 23, 2016, the Office of Community Services (OCS) received OMB approval for the Assets for Independence (AFI) program-specific Performance Progress Report (PPR): OMB Control Number: 0970-0483; Expiration date: 08/31/2019. AFI grantees are now required to use the new PPR to report data on their AFI project(s). AFI will no longer collect the SF-PPR form semiannually. Financial reporting requirements are not affected by the new PPR; grantees must still submit the SF-425 semiannually for each AFI grant.
