Project: Protection and Advocacy for Individuals With Mental Illness (PAIMI) Annual Program Performance Report (OMB No. 0930–0169)— Extension The Protection and Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness (PAIMI) Act at 42 U.S.C. 10801 et seq., authorized funds to the same protection and advocacy (P&A) systems created under the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 1975, known as the DD Act (as amended in 2000, 42 U.S.C. 15001 et seq.]. The DD Act supports the Protection and Advocacy for Developmental Disabilities (PADD) Program administered by the Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AIDD) within the Administration on Community Living. AIDD is the lead federal P&A agency. The PAIMI Program supports the same governor-designated P&A systems established under the DD Act by providing legal-based individual and systemic advocacy services to individuals with significant (severe) mental illness (adults) and significant (severe) emotional impairment (children/youth) who are at risk for abuse, neglect and other rights violations while residing in a care or treatment facility. In 2000, the PAIMI Act amendments created a 57th P&A system—the American Indian Consortium (the Navajo and Hopi Tribes in the Four Corners region of the Southwest). The Act, at 42 U.S.C. 10804(d), states that a P&A system may use its allotment to provide representation to individuals with mental illness, as defined by section 42 U.S.C. 10802 (4)(B)(iii) residing in the community, including their own home, only, if the total allotment under this title for any fiscal year is $30 million or more, and in such cases an eligible P&A system must give priority to representing PAIMI-eligible individuals, as defined by 42 U.S.C. 10802(4)(A) and (B)(i). The Children’s Health Act of 2000 (CHA) also referenced the state P&A system authority to obtain information on incidents of seclusion, restraint and related deaths [see, CHA, Part H at 42 U.S.C. 290ii–1]. PAIMI Program formula grants awarded by SAMHSA go directly to each of the 57 governor-designated P&A systems. These systems are located in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, the American Indian Consortium, American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The PAIMI Act at 42 U.S.C. 10805(7) requires that each P&A system prepare and transmit to the Secretary HHS and to the head of its State mental health agency a report on January 1. This report describes the activities, accomplishments, and expenditures of Number of respondents the system during the most recently completed fiscal year, including a section prepared by the advisory council (the PAIMI Advisory Council or PAC) that describes the activities of the council and its independent assessment of the operations of the system. The Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) proposes no revisions to its annual PAIMI Program Performance Report (PPR), including the advisory council section, at this time for the following reasons: (1) AIDD is currently piloting a PADD PPR. The results of the pilot will not be available until October 2014 (FY 2015). (2) when the AIDD/ACL PPR is final, SAMHSA will revise its PPR, as appropriate, for consistency with the annual reporting requirements under the PAIMI Act and Rules [42 CFR Part 51]; (3) SAMHSA will develop a mechanism to facilitate electronic submission of the annual PAIMI PPR and ACR as recommended in the Evaluation of the Protection and Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness (PAIMI) Program, Phase III. Evaluation Report al Report (SAMHSA (2011). Evaluation of the Protection and Advocacy for Individuals With Mental Illness (PAIMI) Program, Phase III. Final Report. HHS Pub. No. PEP12– EVALPAIMI. Rockville, MD: CMHS, SAMHSA). (4) GPRA requirements for the PAIMI Program will be revised as appropriate to ensure that SAMHSA obtains information that closely measures actual outcomes of programs that it funds and (5) SAMHSA will reduce wherever feasible the current reporting burden by removing any information that does not facilitate evaluation of the programmatic and fiscal effectiveness of a state P&A system. The current report formats will be effective for the FY 2014 PPR reports due on January 1, 2015.

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

    The Protection and Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness 
(PAIMI) Act at 42 U.S.C. 10801 et seq., authorized funds to the same 
protection and advocacy (P&A) systems created under the Developmental 
Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 1975, known as the DD 
Act (as amended in 2000, 42 U.S.C. 15001 et seq.]. The DD Act supports 
the Protection and Advocacy for Developmental Disabilities (PADD) 
Program administered by the Administration on Intellectual and 
Developmental Disabilities (AIDD) within the Administration on 
Community Living. AIDD is the lead federal P&A agency. The PAIMI 
Program supports the same governor-designated P&A systems established 
under the DD Act by providing legal-based individual and systemic 
advocacy services to individuals with significant (severe) mental 
illness (adults) and significant (severe) emotional impairment 
(children/youth) who are at risk for abuse, neglect and other rights 
violations while residing in a care or treatment facility.
    In 2000, the PAIMI Act amendments created a 57th P&A system--the 
American Indian Consortium (the Navajo and Hopi Tribes in the Four 
Corners region of the Southwest). The Act, at 42 U.S.C. 10804(d), 
states that a P&A system may use its allotment to provide 
representation to individuals with mental illness, as defined by 
section 42 U.S.C. 10802 (4)(B)(iii) residing in the community, 
including their own home, only, if the total allotment under this title 
for any fiscal year is $30 million or more, and in such cases an 
eligible P&A system must give priority to representing PAIMI-eligible 
individuals, as defined by 42 U.S.C. 10802(4)(A) and (B)(i).
    The Children's Health Act of 2000 (CHA) also referenced the state 
P&A system authority to obtain information on incidents of seclusion, 
restraint and related deaths [see, CHA, Part H at 42 U.S.C. 290ii-1]. 
PAIMI Program formula grants awarded by SAMHSA go directly to each of 
the 57 governor-designated P&A systems. These systems are located in 
each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, the American Indian 
Consortium, American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern 
Mariana Islands, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin 
Islands.
    The PAIMI Act at 42 U.S.C. 10805(7) requires that each P&A system 
prepare and transmit to the Secretary HHS and to the head of its State 
mental health agency a report on January 1. This report describes the 
activities, accomplishments, and expenditures of the system during the 
most recently completed fiscal year, including a section prepared by 
the advisory council (the PAIMI Advisory Council or PAC) that describes 
the activities of the council and its independent assessment of the 
operations of the system.
    The Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) 
proposes no revisions to its annual PAIMI Program Performance Report 
(PPR), including the advisory council section, at this time for the 
following reasons: (1) AIDD is currently piloting a PADD PPR. The 
results of the pilot will not be available until October 2014 (FY 
2015). (2) when the AIDD/ACL PPR is final, SAMHSA will revise its PPR, 
as appropriate, for consistency with the annual reporting requirements 
under the PAIMI Act and Rules [42 CFR Part 51]; (3) SAMHSA will develop 
a mechanism to facilitate electronic submission of the annual PAIMI PPR 
and ACR as recommended in the Evaluation of the Protection and Advocacy 
for Individuals with Mental Illness (PAIMI) Program, Phase III. 
Evaluation Report al Report (SAMHSA (2011). Evaluation of the 
Protection and Advocacy for Individuals With Mental Illness (PAIMI) 
Program, Phase III. Final Report. HHS Pub. No. PEP12-EVALPAIMI. 
Rockville, MD: CMHS, SAMHSA). (4) GPRA requirements for the PAIMI 
Program will be revised as appropriate to ensure that SAMHSA obtains 
information that closely measures actual outcomes of programs that it 
funds and (5) SAMHSA will reduce wherever feasible the current 
reporting burden by removing any information that does not facilitate 
evaluation of the programmatic and fiscal effectiveness of a state P&A 
system. The current report formats will be effective for the FY 2014 
PPR reports due on January 1, 2015.
    The annual burden estimate is as follows:
