    Respondents/Affected Public: Sponsors of Senior Corps grants.

    Abstract: The Progress Report (PPR) was designed to ensure that
grantees of the Senior Corps' programs (RSVP, Foster Grandparent and

purposes; meet agency program management and grant requirements; track
and measure progress to benefit the local project and its contributions
to senior volunteers and the community; and to report progress toward
work plan objectives agreed upon in the granting of the award. The
resulting data is used by grantees and CNCS to track performance and
inform continued grant funding support, as well as to identify trends
and to support management and analysis. CNCS seeks to renew and revise
the current OMB approved PPR to align with recent national performance
measures changes and to remove administrative burdens.
    CNCS also seeks to continue using the currently approved
information collection until the revised information collection is
approved by OMB. The currently approved information collection is due
to expire on December 31, 2019.
