In the FY 2021 Progress Update, you will report progress toward your targets. Appendix B in the PCA Non-Competing Continuation (NCC) progress report instructions on the PCA TA webpage contains instructions for completing editable FY 2021 Progress Update fields. Electronic Handbook (EHBs) will prepopulate the FY 2021 Progress Update with information from the most recently approved Project Work Plan. Base your calculations on numeric progress achieved July 1, 2020 through December 31, 2021. Use the narrative fields to discuss progress achieved through December 31, 2021 and how progress supports achievement of the objective target.
Current Numerator and Denominator
Current data is self-reported for all Objectives. Utilize data that are valid, reliable, and whenever possible, derived from current state or regional-level data sources. Appendix A: Goals and Objectives Development Guide explains how to calculate the Current Numerator and Current Denominator. In your FY 2020 PCA application, you may have used the Baseline Data Source field to define terms from Appendix A (e.g., strategic development, specific readiness scales, comprehensive work plans, social determinants of health). If this is the case, use the same definition when calculating your Current Numerator and Current Denominator.
Formal T/TA Session Current Numeric Progress
Provide the number of formal T/TA sessions from July 1, 2020 through December 31, 2021. T/TA considered formal is scheduled, structured, and has specific objectives and outcomes. Do not count T/TA sessions that do not meet these criteria in your calculations.
Participation Target Current Numeric Progress
Report the number of health center representatives that participated across all formal T/TA sessions from July 1, 2020 through December 31, 2021. Count individuals who participated in more than one T/TA session for each session they attended (e.g., an individual that attended three formal T/TA sessions would count as three).
Participant Satisfaction and Behavior Change Target Current Numeric Progress
Report Participant Satisfaction and Behavior Change Target Current Numeric Progress based on the average (mean) of all formal T/TA session participant surveys administered that assess T/TA activities conducted from July 1, 2020 through December 31, 2021. Your surveys should use a five-point satisfaction rating scale, where a score of five represents the highest level of satisfaction or behavior change. Include two decimal points in your progress reporting. Do not include scores that used a different assessment methodology.
Special Considerations for Participant Satisfaction and Behavior Change Target Current Progress Narrative
When completing the progress narratives for Participant Satisfaction and Participant Behavior Change, explain your survey methodology, including:
- How your T/TA evaluation strategy supports gathering data to inform these targets.
- How you maximized your response rate.
- How you assured follow-up survey respondents represent the variety of health centers in your state or region.
- The timing and frequency of your survey administration, based on the type of T/TA and magnitude of change measured.
- The preferred T/TA delivery methods of the existing and potential health centers in the state or region and what has been possible during the COVID-19 pandemic.
