PY 2016 Minority Report and Narrative for PY 2018 Grant Application
Each year grantees must respond to the findings in the Minority Report as part of the narratives required for their grant application. Although the TEGL for the PY 2018 grants is still in clearance, we do not expect any change in this requirement.
The participation section of PY 2016 Minority Report will not be ready until April, but the attached preliminary outcomes section is available now for your review. (None of the data in the attachment are expected to change in the final version.) You may use the attachment to begin drafting your narrative response. Depending on when the TEGL is released and the participation section is ready, we may allow grantees to submit a partial response with their grant applications and may extend the time for completing the narrative.
Here are draft instructions for the PY 2016 Minority Report narrative:
The minority report does not have participation and enrollment data for three overseas territories and the U.S. Virgin Islands; these four grantees will answer the questions about their outcomes only. All other grantees must describe efforts to serve individuals from minority populations, as well as any disparities in outcomes achieved by those individuals.
Using the PY 2016 SCSEP Minority Report, as well as SPARQ and InfoSPACE data for PY 2017, grantees must describe:
(a) Any significant disparities in enrollment levels or outcomes for minority individuals identified in the PY 2016 report, the extent to which those disparities existed in prior years, and the extent to which they continue to exist in PY 2017;
(b) The factors that may have caused these disparities in enrollment and outcomes; and
(c) The steps the grantee has taken and will take to address any under-service to or disparities in outcomes for minorities
