Source: Web-based data collection system.
Date Sponsored: 12/31/2003.
Limitations: For FY 2004, only 54 of the 56 programs reported data. Two programs did not meet the reporting deadline. For FY 2005, the OMB approval of the data collection instrument expired, so no data were collected. RSA is developing a new data collection instrument to be consistent with the new program in the reauthorized AT Act.
Explanation: The target was not met for FY2004. The AT Act was reauthorized in Oct. 2004, creating a new grant program. Therefore, this systems-change measure will be discontinued and a new measure in place for FY 2006. No data were collected for FY 2005 because of the expiration of the data collection instrument.
