|Targets and Performance Data||Assessment of Progress||Sources and Data Quality|
Explanation: Comparing the data across years is difficult because this is a fairly new program and the number of years of participation differs among grantees. Further analysis of trends and performance outcomes is needed. The AFP program allows for other, non-loan financing mechanisms. NIDRR will further evaluate the AFP to identify factors that have a potentially adverse effect on the program activities and program performance outcomes. NIDRR will use the results of this evaluation to develop strategies to improve outcomes.
