The ABE 5-year narrative is designed to give existing ABE consortia and new or reorganized applicants for ABE funding an opportunity to review and describe program results, successes, organizational structure, adherence to state/federal requirements, and future plans. Once submitted, the narrative is reviewed and evaluated in order to make decisions about new or continuing multi-year program approval for funding. The 5-year narrative process is based on requirements outlined in Minnesota State Statute 124D.52, subd. 2.
