Source: Annual Web-based reporting system.

Frequency: Annually.

Next Data Available: June 2006

Limitations: 19 of 31 grantees reported their 2004 data. The data collection system was not approved for use by OMB until April 2005, resulting in States either (a) not collecting data or (b) having a backlog of data to enter.
 
Explanation: The target for FY 2004 was not met. However, this is likely due to incomplete data. FY2004 performance was calculated as number of loans per $1 million in Federal and State funds cumulatively since the inception of the program rather then funds in FY2004 only. This change was necessary because no new funds were distributed in FY2004. This measure will be discontinued for FY2006.
