The PAIMI Program is managed by the Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) within the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Under the PAIMI Act, formula grant awards are made to governor-designated protection and advocacy (P&A) systems in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia (Mayor), the American Indian Consortium [the Dine (Navajo) and Hopi Peoples in Northern Arizona and New Mexico], and five (5) jurisdictions— American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The awards are used to provide legal-based advocacy services which ensure protection against violation of the constitutional and federal rights of individuals with significant (severe) mental illness (adults) and significant (severe) emotional impairment. In 2000, the PAIMI Act amendments, created a 57th P&A system—the American Indian Consortium and authorized P&A systems to serve PAIMIeligible individuals, as defined under the Act [42 U.S.C. at 10802 (4)], who reside in the community including their own homes. However, P&A services to PAIMI-eligible clients residing in the community is permissible only when the annual PAIMI appropriation met or exceeded $30 million, and that residents in public and private residential care or treatment facilities had service priority over community residents. The Children’s Health Act of 2000 (CHA) [42 U.S.C. 290aa et seq.], also referenced State P&A authority to obtain information on incidents of seclusion, restraint, and related deaths in certain facilities. The PAIMI Act requires each of the 57 P&A systems to file an annual report, no later than January 1st, of its activities and accomplishments and to provide information on such topics as, the numbers of individuals served, types of complaints addressed, and the number of intervention strategies used to resolve VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:27 Sep 07, 2007 Jkt 211001 the presenting issues.

The Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 1975, referred to as the DD Act [42 U.S.C. 6042 et seq.], created the State P&A systems. The Administration on Developmental Disabilities (ADD), within the Administration for Children and Families, has administrative oversight of the Protection and Advocacy for Developmental Disabilities (PADD) Program. Since 1986, the Department has provided formula grant funds to the same governor-designated P&A systems to protect and advocate for individuals with significant mental illness. SAMHSA is currently waiting for the ADD to issue a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPR) for the DD Act of 2000 amendments. These amendments will also govern activities fulfilled by the State P&A systems under the PAIMI Act. Therefore, to ensure to the greatest extent possible that all facets of the P&A system administered by the Department are subject to the same requirements, SAMHSA will wait until the DD Act NPR is published before revising the PAIMI Rules. [The Final PAIMI Rules were issued in 1997 and were extended in 2000 and 2004. An FRN was published May 2006 to extend the current PAIMI Rules, which will expire in 2007, until 2010].

Project: Protection and Advocacy for Individuals With Mental Illness 
(PAIMI) Annual Program Performance Report (OMB No. 0930-0169)--Revision

    The Protection and Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness 
(PAIMI) Act, [42 U.S.C. 10801 et seq.] authorized funds to support 
protection and advocacy services on behalf of individuals with severe 
mental illness and severe emotional impairment who are at risk for 
abuse (including incidents of seclusion, restraint, and serious 
injuries or fatalities related to such incidents, neglect, residing in 
a public or private care or treatment facility. The PAIMI Program is 
managed by the Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) within the 
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
    Under the PAIMI Act, formula grant awards are made to governor-
designated protection and advocacy (P&A) systems in each of the 50 
states, the District of Columbia (Mayor), the American Indian 
Consortium [the Dine (Navajo) and Hopi Peoples in Northern Arizona and 
New Mexico], and five (5) jurisdictions--American Samoa, Guam, the 
Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Commonwealth of 
Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The awards are used to 
provide legal-based advocacy services which ensure protection against 
violation of the constitutional and federal rights of individuals with 
significant (severe) mental illness (adults) and significant (severe) 
emotional impairment.
    In 2000, the PAIMI Act amendments, created a 57th P&A system--the 
American Indian Consortium and authorized P&A systems to serve PAIMI-
eligible individuals, as defined under the Act [42 U.S.C. at 10802 
(4)], who reside in the community including their own homes. However, 
P&A services to PAIMI-eligible clients residing in the community is 
permissible only when the annual PAIMI appropriation met or exceeded 
$30 million, and that residents in public and private residential care 
or treatment facilities had service priority over community residents. 
The Children's Health Act of 2000 (CHA) [42 U.S.C. 290aa et seq.], also 
referenced State P&A authority to obtain information on incidents of 
seclusion, restraint, and related deaths in certain facilities.
    The PAIMI Act requires each of the 57 P&A systems to file an annual 
report, no later than January 1st, of its activities and 
accomplishments and to provide information on such topics as, the 
numbers of individuals served, types of complaints addressed, and the 
number of intervention strategies used to resolve the presenting 
issues. Under the Act, the PAIMI Advisory Council (PAC) of each P&A 
system is also required to submit its independent assessment of the 
effectiveness of the services provided to, and the activities conducted 
by, the P&A systems on behalf of PAIMI-eligible individuals and their 
family members, in a separate section of the Program Performance Report 
(PPR).
    The Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 
1975, referred to as the DD Act [42 U.S.C. 6042 et seq.], created the 
State P&A systems. The Administration on Developmental Disabilities 
(ADD), within the Administration for Children and Families, has 
administrative oversight of the Protection and Advocacy for 
Developmental Disabilities (PADD) Program. Since 1986, the Department 
has provided formula grant funds to the same governor-designated P&A 
systems to protect and advocate for individuals with significant mental 
illness. SAMHSA is currently waiting for the ADD to issue a Notice of 
Proposed Rulemaking (NPR) for the DD Act of 2000 amendments. These 
amendments will also govern activities fulfilled by the State P&A 
systems under the PAIMI Act. Therefore, to ensure to the greatest 
extent possible that all facets of the P&A system administered by the 
Department are subject to the same requirements, SAMHSA will wait until 
the DD Act NPR is published before revising the PAIMI Rules. [The Final 
PAIMI Rules were issued in 1997 and were extended in 2000 and 2004. An 
FRN was published May 2006 to extend the current PAIMI Rules, which 
will expire in 2007, until 2010].
    SAMHSA is revising the PAIMI Annual PPR for the following reasons: 
(1) To make it consistent with the requirements of the annual reporting 
requirements under the PAIMI Act and the PAIMI Rules [42 CFR Part 51] 
and the CHA of 2000 Parts H and I; (2) to conform with the Office of 
Management and Budget's (OMB) findings and recommendations from the FY 
2005 Program Assessment Rating Tool (PART) review of the PAIMI Program; 
(3) to broaden the category of deaths investigated by the State P&A 
systems; (4) to reduce the reporting burdens for the State P&A systems 
and the PAIMI PAC in certain areas; and, (5) to enhance the PAC section 
by providing better information on its role, responsibility, and 
authority on P&A system PAIMI activities and services.
    Planned revisions to the PAIMI Annual PPR and the PAC included the 
following items:
    (1) Changing the fonts to improve readability;
    (2) Adding Tables of Content and Glossaries to the PPR and Advisory 
Council Report (ACR) sections;
    (3) Reducing the reporting burden in Section 2. PAIMI Program 
Priorities and Objectives by requesting only one case example per 
priority (goal) rather than per objective;
    (4) Revising Sections: 2. PAIMI Program Priorities (Goals) and 
Objectives: 4. Case Complaints/Problems of Individuals; and, 5. 
Intervention Strategies on Behalf of Groups of PAIMI-eligible 
Individuals, for consistency with the findings and recommendations from 
the OMB, 2005 PART evaluation/assessment of the PAIMI Program and to 
clarify and/or enhance the instructional guidance for determining 
activity/intervention outcomes and estimating the number of individuals 
or groups impacted by P&A system activities/interventions in sections 4 
and 5;
    (5) Expanding Section 4.E.2. by adding an item c. for the number of 
death investigation activities not related to incidents of seclusion 
and restraint;
    (6) Providing the applicable PAIMI citations to the guidance in 
Section 8. Other Services & Activities.
    (7) Modifying the ACR, Sections B. PAC Membership and C. PAC 
Ethnicity/Racial Diversity for consistency with the format used in the 
PAIMI Application for FY 2007-2009;
    (8) Enhancing Section F. PAC Activities to include the applicable 
citations that will provide each PAC with better information on its 
authority, role, and responsibilities as the P&A governing authority.
    (9) Revising Section G. PAIMI Assessment of PAIMI Program 
Operations, by eliminating the previous requirement that the PAC 
comment on each P&A system annual priority and objective. The PAC will 
only submit a summary of its assessment of the P&A system's annual 
PAIMI Program priorities, objectives, activities and program 
operations;
    (10) Adding an additional item to Section G. to identify the 
training and technical assistance needs of each PAC; and,
    (11) Adding the applicable citations to Section H. Grievance 
Procedures to provide the PAC with better information on its authority, 
role, and responsibilities.
    The revised report formats will be effective for the report due on 
January 1, 2008.
    The annual burden estimate is as follows:
