Category 3 NMI Reporting Template

Attached below is the DY6 R2 Category 3 Reporting Template for the NMI period. The Cat 3 NMI template allows reporting only for outcomes that received an NMI determination. Providers responding to an NMI for a Category 3 outcome upload one template to the first NMI milestone, and indicate where the template is uploaded in the online reporting system milestone progress update. Providers will make selections in the online reporting system in accordance with the achievement levels indicated in the NMI reporting template.

If you already submitted the previous version of the template, and you have confirmed that all of the projects for which you received an NMI were unlocked, there is no reason to submit the revised template.
