Performance trends are based on actual data reported for FY 2000 through 2003. This data demonstrates significant annual increases in the percentage of PAIRs achieving changes in policies and practices, making it difficult to accurately assess trends and performance. However, FY 2003 performance is in line with the target established for the program.
