Abstract: Form RSA-227 is used to meet specific data collection requirements contained in Section 112 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and its implementing Federal Regulations at 34 CFR Part 370. Data from the form have been used to evaluate within individual programs. These data also have been used to indicate trends in the provision of services from year-to-year. In addition, Form RSA-227 will be used to analyze and evaluate the effectiveness of eligible Client Assistance Program (CAP) administered by designated CAP agencies. These agencies provide services to individuals seeking or receiving services from programs and projects authorized by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. Form RSA-227 has enabled RSA to furnish the President and Congress with data on the provision of advocacy services and has helped to establish a sound basis for future funding requests.
