Title: Financial Status Reporting Form for State Councils on Developmental Disabilities Program.

OMB No.0980-0212.


For the program of the State Councils on Developmental Disabilities, funds are awarded to State agencies contingent on fiscal requirements in subtitle B of the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act. The SF-425, ordinarily mandated in the revised OMB Circular A-102, provides no accounting breakouts necessary for proper stewardship. Consequently, the proposed streamlined from will substitute for the SF-425 and will allow compliance monitoring and proactive compliance maintenance and technical assistance.
