Allocation of Admin Funds for State Costs of Implementation of New Meal Patterns for the NSLP and SBP

Last Published: 04/16/2014

The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (the Act), Public Law 111-296, was signed into law by the President on December 13, 2010. Section 201 of the Act requires performance-based cash assistance for school food authorities (SFAs) certified compliant with meal pattern and nutrient standards. This provision requires State agencies (SAs) to certify whether participating SFAs are in compliance with meal requirements and, therefore, eligible to receive performance-based cash assistance for each reimbursable lunch served (an additional six cents per lunch, adjusted annually, available beginning October 1, 2012).
