PPR Guidance for CED Focus on Social Enterprises Grantees

CED Focus on Social Enterprise (CED-SE) grantees should use the CED program-specific PPR form to report on the progress of their grants semi-annually.

CED-SE grantees should fill out their PPR mostly the same way traditional CED grants do, following the general PPR guidance. The guidance in this document provides some suggestions for how the CED-SE grantees can elaborate on their work and clarifies some specific reporting metrics.

Form A

Form A will mostly be reported the same way. There are a few places where grantees can elaborate on in the comments; however, the grantee will have more recommended areas for elaboration on Form B.

Indicator Guidance
A-01-B and A-04-B The incubator does not count as a new or expanded business.
A-09-J to A-25-E In the comments, describe the support services provided that helped to support the preparation, retention, and growth of individuals with low income, as applicable to your project

 

Form B

There are several areas of Form B where the social enterprise incubator and services can be described.

  • Distinctive characteristics of participants/community
