|Goal 8: To provide to individuals with disabilities recreation activities and related experiences that can be expected to aid in their employment, mobility, socialization, independence, and community integration.|
|Objective 1 of 1: RECREATIONAL PROGRAMS ARE SUSTAINED AFTER FEDERAL FUNDING CEASES.|
|Indicator 8.1.1 of 1: Project continuation: Recreational programs are sustained after Federal funding ceases. By fall 2001, 75 percent of programs initiated since FY 1993 will be continuing after Federal funding has ended.|
|Targets and Performance Data||Assessment of Progress||Sources and Data Quality|
Status: Target met.
Explanation: Recreational programs may continue for lengthy periods of time after Federal funding ends as long as they have other funding sources. Some become other types of recreation programs and are not counted here as continuing. Of the 70 projects initiated since FY 1993, 51 of them are continuing. FY 2001 target was reduced to reflect the fact that the 1999 performance may not have been indicative of what is possible.
Additional Source Information: Quarterly telephone monitoring reports and Annual and Final Performance Reports.
Data Available: December 2002.
Validated By: No Formal Verification.
Limitations: Program staff will contact each project to ensure that projects are continuing. Each project will provide specific information (location, number served, types of disabilities). An automated database will be developed to track and maintain contact with projects after Federal funding ceases.
