Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request

    Proposed Projects/Title: State Developmental Disabilities Council 
5-Year State Plan.

Description

    A Plan developed by the State Council on Developmental Disabilities 
is required by Federal statute. Each State Council on Developmental 
Disabilities must develop the plan, provide for public comments in the 
State, provide for approval by the State's Governor, and finally submit 
the plan on a five-year basis. On an annual basis, the Council must 
review the plan and make any amendments. The State Plan will be used 
(1) by the Council as a planning document; (2) by the citizenry of the 
State as a mechanism for commenting on the plans of the Council; and 
(3) by the Department as a stewardship tool, for ensuring compliance 
with the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act, 
as one basis for providing technical assistance (e.g., during site 
visits), and

as a support for management decision making.
