    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, ACL has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance. The proposed data collection represents a revision of a currently approved information collection (ICR-Rev). This collection is necessary for the proper performance and function of the agency. On an annual basis, Councils are required to submit a Program Performance Report (PPR) to describe the extent to which annual progress is being achieved on the 5-year State plan goals. The PPR will be used by (1) the Council as a planning document to track progress made in meeting state plan goals; (2) the citizenry of the State as a mechanism for monitoring progress and activities on the plans of the Council; and (3) the Department as a stewardship tool for ensuring compliance with the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000 and for monitoring and providing technical assistance (e.g., during site visits), and support for management decision making.

    Comments in Response to the 60-Day Federal Register Notice

    A notice was published in the Federal Register on October 4, 2017 (Vol. 82, Number 191; pp. 46246-46247). Two comments were received. The first was a comment about ACL and policies around deinstitutionalization. The second comment requested that Councils have more transparency and make their PPRs available to the public via their websites. ACL appreciates and understands these comments. Although ACL recognizes that these comments might provide useful information for the program, it is not required to meet the statutory requirements for this program. No change is proposed.

    The proposed template may be found on the ACL website at https://www.acl.gov/​about-acl/​public-input.
