All grantees are expected to submit an annual performance report documenting their success in addressing the GEPA performance measures and to submit a final performance report 90 days after the close of their grant. In addition grantees are required to submit a supplement to the final performance report two years after their GAANN grant ends updating the educational and employment outcomes of each GAANN fellow.
The Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GAANN) Program Annual Performance Report (APR) is available below. Project directors are notified in spring when APRs are due. The Final Performance Report is similar to the APR and is due 90 days after the close of the grant.
Past Program Performance
Final performance reports submitted by grantees in previous years are being used to inform program improvement in multiple ways. The actual performance results are compared to the annual targets established by the Department and published in annual program performance plans (see above link).
Additionally, performance assessment reports provide a narrative description of program performance for cohorts of grants. The current report is linked below.
Actual performance data also are used to evaluate the cost effectiveness of individual grantees and help identify promising practices. The recent GAANN cost effectiveness analysis is linked below.
