OAAPS is Now Open!

We’re excited to announce that the Older Americans Act Performance System (OAAPS) is now open for exploration. OAAPS is the required reporting system for all Title VI Program Performance Reports (PPR) beginning with FY20 grants. OAAPS will make reporting your PPR data easier and more streamlined.
 
On Tuesday October 13,  all Title VI directors, caregiver contacts, fiscal contacts, and principal officials received an email from noreply@okta.com with instructions for activating your OAAPS account. If you have not already done so, please create your account by following the instructions in the email, or by using step-by-step instructions in the attached “Creating an OAAPS User Account and Activating the Account” How-To Guide.
 
ACL will be having a series of webinars over the coming months to help everyone get comfortable with OAAPS. The first of these will be on October 28th from 2-3 pm Eastern and will be a walkthrough of the system.  We hope that over the next few weeks you will have a chance to try to log in and check out the new system. The best browsers to access OAAPS are Chrome, Firefox and Safari.

New: Title VI Evaluation Tool

ACL is excited to announce the Title VI Evaluation Tool! Title VI programs are required to conduct periodic evaluations of activities provided through the Title VI grant program. This tool provides everything you need to conduct an evaluation of how well your program is meeting the needs of your elders and caregivers. The tool supports you in planning your evaluation, conducting your survey, and collecting and analyzing the survey results. The tool is a ready-to-use product that includes two surveys: one for Part A/B services (Nutrition and Supportive Services) and the second for Part C (Caregiver Support) services.

This evaluation tool that can assist you in managing your program and meeting the requirements of the Title VI grant is available now on ACL.gov. Get the evaluation user guide here and the survey response tool here.
