Centers for Independent Living Program Performance Report (CILPPR) (formerly known as the 704 Part II report)
The CIL PPR is submitted annually by all CILs receiving IL Part C funds. The CIL PPR is used by ACL to assess grantees' compliance with title VII of the Act, with section 1329 of the Code of Federal Regulations and with applicable provisions of the HHS regulations at 45 CFR part 75. The CIL PPR serves as the primary basis for ACL's monitoring activities in fulfillment of its responsibilities under sections 706 and 722 of the Act. The CIL PPR also enables ACL to collect Start Printed Page 11472 qualitative and quantitative data to track performance outcomes and efficiency measures of the centers for independent living (CILs) programs with respect to the annual and long-term performance targets established in compliance with GPRA. The CIL PPR is also used by ACL to design CIL training and technical assistance programs authorized by section 721 of the Act.
