Start Preamble

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

OMB No.: 0980-0270.

Description: Federal statute and regulation require each State Protection and Advocacy (P&A) System to 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. While the P&A is mandated to protect and advocate under a range of different Federally authorized Start Printed Page 33265disabilities programs, only the PADD program requires an SGP. Following the required public input for the coming fiscal year, the P&As submit the final version of this SGP to the Administration on Developmental Disabilities (ADD). ADD will aggregate the information in the SGPs into a national profile of programmatic emphasis for P&A Systems in the coming year. This aggregation 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.
