PPR Forms and Instructions

PPR Forms and Instructions contains CED PPR forms A, B and E, as well as instructions for properly filling out the forms.

This document should only be used as an example, it is not for submission. PPRs must be submitted semi-annually within OLDC. 

How to Start Collecting Data for Your CED Grant

Data collection is important because it provides the opportunity for both program-level monitoring and analysis, as well as grantee-level monitoring.

It also provides grantees with a way to track their progress over the course of their grant.

Watch this video about the forms and indicators included in the PPR and begin collecting data for you CED grant.

Using the Data Collection Tool

The Data Collection Tool is an Excel-based tool designed to simplify collecting data for Form A of the PPR. The tool will help you clarify exactly what information you need to be collecting and calculates all the information needed for Form A. If you track the necessary information in the tool, you’ll have accurate numbers to plug into the PPR in the OLDC system.
