Start Preamble

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

OMB No.: 0980-0270.

Description: As required by Federal statute and regulation, each State Protection and Advocacy (P&A) System must prepare and submit to public comment a Statement of Goals and Priorities (SGP) for the P&A for Developmental Disabilities (PADD) program for each coming fiscal year. The P&A is mandated to protect and advocate under a range of different Federally authorized disabilities programs, but only the PADD program requires an SGP. The final version of this SGP, following the required public input for the coming fiscal year, is submitted to the Administration on Developmental Disabilities (ADD). The information in the SGP will be aggregated into a national profile of programmatic emphasis for P&A Systems in the coming year. It will provide ADD with a tool for monitoring of the public input requirement. Furthermore, it will provide an overview of program direction, and permit ADD to track accomplishments against goals/targets, permitting the formulation of technical assistance and compliance with the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993.

Respondents: State and Tribal Governments.
