Proposed 2021 Annual Program Performance Report (APPR) Questions


Tell your story using data from your comprehensive Needs Assessment (NA), Early Childhood Integrated Data System (ECIDS) (if applicable), Program Performance Evaluation Plan (PPEP), and other data collected to articulate the progress made in your Strategic Plan (SP). We ask that you use data as one means of measuring change. We do recognize that the past year has been unprecedented and that some progress may not be captured through a variety of quantifiable measures but may also be captured through other qualitative measures or narrative outcomes. It may be helpful to break down each question into sections as it will allow you the flexibility to address each component, and the overall intent of the various parts of each question more concisely. Please indicate, as appropriate, if any activities or efforts are ongoing.


We do not anticipate the APPR to be less than 20 pages or more than 35 pages. However, the actual length should be determined by the number of pages needed to respond to these following questions accurately and succinctly.


  1. Discuss in detail, how you used the PDG B-5 grant to support the development or enhancement of your statewide comprehensive early childhood care and education system. If available, use data to support your response.


  1. How have PDG B-5 funds helped you use existing federal, state, local, and non-governmental resources more efficiently to strengthen the delivery of existing programs? Include efforts to align regulatory standards and requirements, and efficiencies, addressing one, two or all three of these efforts: (1) resource sharing, (2) coordination of services, and (3) reduction in the duplication of services. In addition, describe other approaches to improve resource efficiency. If available, use data to support your response.


  1. How have PDG B-5 funds helped you improve the coordination and delivery of services across models and funding streams in the state's mixed delivery system? In your response, include Head Start and child care providers, home visiting and preschool programs, state and local governments, Indian tribes and tribal organizations, private entities (including faith and community-based entities) and local educational agencies, if applicable. If available, use data to support your response.


  1. Taking into account the realities of COVID, describe how PDG B-5 funds have helped you develop recommendations to better use existing resources to serve more children and families and improve the overall participation of all children in a mixed delivery system of federal, state, and local early childhood care and education programs. Please ensure your response includes specific mention of infants and toddlers, vulnerable, underserved, or unserved children and children with, or at risk for, disabilities – even if these recommendations may not be implemented until after the pandemic is under control. If available, use data to support your response.


  1. Taking into account the realities of COVID, describe how PDG B-5 funds have helped improve program quality, and the degree to which you have been able to maintain access and availability of services.
