CNCS Evaluation TA Request Portal for ASN grantees and subgrantees- now live!

On February 7, 2017, CNCS launched an on-line Evaluation TA Request Portal for AmeriCorps State and National (ASN) grantees and subgrantees at https://americorpsevaluationta.norc.org. The TA Portal allows grantees and subgrantees to submit requests for technical assistance (TA) support for a variety of evaluation needs, including evaluation design and implementation.  Examples of the types of requests that may be requested through the TA Portal:

  • Answering questions on evaluation design and approach
  • Providing feedback on evaluation materials and data collection tools
  • Advising on data collection and/or analysis procedures
  • Discussing approaches for identifying an external evaluator

TA eligibility requirements include:

  • Grantees and subgrantees must be currently funded by CNCS
  • Grantees and subgrantees conducting external evaluations may only submit requests after consulting with their external evaluator
  • State subgrantees may only submit requests after consulting with their State Commission
  • State Commissions receiving Commission Investment Funds to support evaluation TA should attempt to resolve TA requests with CIF resources, if applicable, before advising subgrantees to request assistance through the TA Portal

Requests may be submitted at any time during the grant cycle, are not limited by funding amount, and will not affect current or future awards.

If you have any questions about the Evaluation TA Request Portal, please contact either Adrienne DiTommaso at aditommaso@cns.gov or Carla Ganiel at cganiel@cns.gov . We believe the new portal will make requesting, receiving, and tracking evaluation TA easier, faster, and more effective.  We’re excited to offer this service for supporting our grantees with their evaluation activities and requirements!
