Consolidated Annual Report (CAR)

Under the Perkins legislation and applicable Department regulations, eligible agencies are required to submit the following reports each year—

  • Narrative performance report pursuant to 2 CFR 200.328 and 34 CFR 76.720;
  • Financial reports pursuant to 2 CFR 200.327 and 34 CFR 76.720; and
  • Performance data reports pursuant to section 113 of the Perkins Act.

To enable eligible agencies to efficiently and effectively meet their annual reporting requirements, the Department has combined these reports into a single reporting instrument, the Consolidated Annual Report (CAR). The CAR is due by December 31 each year. For the December 2019 CAR, eligible agencies will follow the information under the Perkins IV tab below to report on FY 2018-19, which is the last year of the Perkins IV statute. Beginning for the December 2020 CAR, eligible agencies will follow the information under the Perkins V tab below to report on FY 2019-20 and subsequent years under the newly-enacted Perkins V statute.
