|Objective 8.1 of 1: Facilitate the change of laws and policies to obtain increased availability or provision of assistive technology devices and assistive technology services|

|Targets and Performance Data||Assessment of Progress||Sources and Data Quality|
Explanation: As of FY 02, all 56 grantees reported versus 51 in FY 01, leading to full participation of state grantees to better reflect the Department's focus on accountability and outcomes-oriented measures. The grantees have sustained their previous performance level, which is most likely reflective of progress made earlier in the program and thus suggests revision of the performance indicator. Recent enactment of the Assistive Technology (AT) Act of 2004 warrants reevaluation of the current performance indicator and target. RSA will maintain the measure for FY 2005, but will reevaluate and revise as necessary so that it is consistent with new statutory requirements under the AT Act of 2004.
