U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs

Recipients of multi-year discretionary grants must submit an annual performance report (APR) demonstrating substantial progress for meeting project objectives that will be used to determine continuation funding.  The 2022 Annual Performance Report (APR) Package for the Personnel Development to Improve Services and Results for Children with Disabilities (CFDA 84.325) includes the Dear Colleague Letter with instructions and forms.

Blank Forms for Annual Performance Reporting

While the Department receives actual data electronically through systems (e.g., G5, grants.gov, PDPDCS), these blank forms are helpful in drafting reports in preparation for submission of information into G5. 

The forms used for annual performance reports are available at Grant Application and Other Forms – Department of Education, including the ED 524-B: Part 1 -Cover Sheet and Executive Summary; ED 524-B: Part 2-Project Status; and ED 524-B:Part 3-Instructions. Also available is the ED 524 Example for Training Grants: Additional Indirect Cost Information and the ED 524 Form and Instructions for reporting budget information for non-construction programs.
