    Title of Collection: Protection and Advocacy of Individual Rights.
    OMB Control Number: 1820-0627.
    Agency Form Number(s): N/A.
    Frequency of Responses: Annually.
    Affected Public: Not-for-profit institutions; State, Local, or

    Abstract: The Annual Protection and Advocacy of Individual Rights 
(PAIR) Program Performance Report (Form RSA-509) will be used to 
analyze and evaluate the effectiveness of eligible systems within 
individual states in meeting annual priorities and objectives. These 
systems provide services to eligible individuals with disabilities to 
protect their legal and human rights. The Rehabilitation Services 
Administration (RSA) uses the form to meet specific data collection 
requirements of Section 509 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as 
amended (the act), and its implementing federal regulations at 34 CFR 
part 381. PAIR programs must report annually using the form, which is 
due on or before December 30 each year. Form RSA-509 has enabled RSA to 
furnish the President and Congress with data on the provision of 
protection and advocacy services and has helped to establish a sound 
basis for future funding requests. These data also have been used to 
indicate trends in the provision of services from year to year.
