Promising Practices in Grantee Performance Measurement
AbstractThe public has an interest in seeing its tax dollars accomplish worthwhile ends at all levels of government. At the state and local level, ambitious and technically sophisticated performance measurement efforts are increasingly common. When federal dollars are programmed and spent locally, effective federal efforts depend decisively on the ability of state and local governments to measure and improve performance of their programs. To help community development grantees better assess the performance of their programs, the Department of Housing and Urban Development sponsored a study to identify and document promising performance measurement practices in a small number of jurisdictions. Five communities with emerging reputations for carrying out effective performance measurement in one or more community development programs were studied: Charlotte, North Carolina; Austin, Texas; King County, Washington; Minneapolis, Minnesota; and Burlington, Vermont.
