The Florida Department of Health, Early Steps Program, is required to report on the performance of each local program compared to the state targets in the State Performance Plan.

Florida’s Early Steps Program is responsible for the completion of the federally required State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report (SPP/APR)   which consists of eleven federal performance indicators: three compliance indicators with performance expectations set at 100%, and eight are outcome measures in which the target measures are established by state stakeholders and the state program office.
