45 CFR 1388.2 - Program criteria—purpose.
The program criteria will be used to assess the quality of the University Affiliated Programs (UAP). The overall purpose of the program criteria is to assure the promotion of independence, productivity, integration and inclusion of individuals with developmental disabilities. Compliance with the program criteria is a prerequisite for a UAP to receive the minimum funding level of a UAP. However, compliance with the program criteria does not, by itself, assure funding. The Program Criteria are one part of the Quality Enhancement System (QES), and provide a structure for self-assessment and peer review of each UAP. (The QES is a holistic approach to enable persons with developmental disabilities and their families to achieve maximum potential. All UAPs use the QES.)
