APR & Program Measures

Annual Performance Reports (APR)

You will report your annual progress of your project objectives and program measures in this APR, also known as “continuation package”. In February, OSEP will send the continuation package and you will then have 90 days to submit. You will provide a draft copy of your Program measures in mid-April and your APR will be due toward the beginning of May. A final report will also be due within 90 days after the last day of your performance period.

  • APRs due May 3rd
