A: Agency Description

To help ensure that individuals with disabilities receive appropriate care and treatment, each State has a system, designated by the Governor, to protect and advocate for the rights of people with disabilities. The Protection and Advocacy Project (P&A) is the federally mandated, statewide, protection and advocacy system serving individuals with disabilities in North Dakota. The central purpose of the protection and advocacy system throughout the United States is to respond to allegations of abuse, neglect and violations of rights of persons with disabilities or discrimination based on their disability. As of July 2011, P&A has eight federal programs:

As mandated by State law (N.D.C.C. § 25-01.3) P&A is an independent State agency governed by the Committee on Protection and Advocacy. The Committee on P&A has promulgated State rules at N.D.A.C. § 65.5-01.
