Considering the direct certification performance benchmark requirements in Section 9(b)(4) of the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act (as amended by the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010), the Food and Nutrition Service is expanding eligibility to apply for direct certification grants in Fiscal Year 2012 to include States that have direct certification rates below 95 percent for children in households receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, as reported in the 2011 Direct Certification Report to Congress (Direct Certification in the National School Lunch Program: State Implementation Progress School Year 2010-2011, October 2011).
