Performance Data Elements
This section contains a list of data elements of interest to OneStar and CNCS. Please provide cumulative totals. Your responses in this section should include all data collected for these elements during the time period 10/1/2019-9/30/2020, regardless of the member cohort or program year to which the data are connected. If you collect a significant amount of data in September and need more time to compile it, please contact your Program Officer for an extension.

If the category does not apply to your program or you do not collect that specific data, enter "0". 
The following elements are REQUIRED for all grantees:
*Number of individuals who submitted applications for AmeriCorps member positions in your program during the time period from October 1-September 30. National direct grantees and state commissions are required to coordinate to ensure that they are not reporting duplicate counts. If an organization has both a national grant and a state subgrant, either the national grantee or the state commission should count the number of applicants for the state program, not both.
Number of volunteers recruited, trained, managed, or coordinated by your program during the time period from October 1-September 30. For programs that engage national service participants (AmeriCorps members or Senior Corps volunteers), the count should represent only volunteers recruited/trained/managed/coordinated through the efforts of the national service participant, and should not include the national service participants themselves. Each individual volunteer should be counted only once even if they participated in more than one volunteer opportunity.
Dollar amount of cash and in-kind resources leveraged by your program to support activities under this specific program during the time period from October 1-September 30. The reported value should NOT include resources reported as formal match or cost share (if applicable) and should also not include resources provided by CNCS as federal grant share or member benefits. Rather, the reported value should reflect any actual expenditures beyond the formal budget (similar to the “Other Revenue” funds projected in the AmeriCorps State and National grant application). The reported amount should be backed up by your own accounting records but does not need to follow the documentation requirements for formal match or cost share. Resources raised by the national service participant (if applicable) should not be included in the reported value; this value should be reported in a separate Performance Data Element.
The following elements are REQUIRED for all grantees for whom the indicator is relevant to their program model ("relevant" refers to something that is a significant part of a grantee's program design and Theory of Change):
