Title: Developmental Disabilities Protection and Advocacy Statement of Goals and Priorities.

OMB No.: 0980-0270.

Description: Required by Federal statute and regulation. Each State Protection and Advocacy System must prepare and submit to public comment a Statement of Goals and Priorities (SGP). The final version of this SGP for the coming fiscal year is submitted to the Administration on Developmental Disabilities (ADD).

It will provide ADD with an overview of program direction, and permit ADD to track accomplishments against objectives/targets, permitting the formulation of technical assistance and compliance with the Government Performance and Results Act. ADD is currently in the process of coordinating with other federal funding agencies to develop a more comprehensive SGP format.
