The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, Section 103, directs USDA to demonstrate direct certification for free lunches and breakfasts to children who are receiving Medicaid and whose households have a gross income as measured by Medicaid that does not exceed 133 percent Federal Poverty Level. In response to this Federal mandate, the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) seeks approval to conduct data collection as part of the Evaluation of Demonstrations of NSLP/SBP Direct Certification of Children Receiving Medicaid Benefits. The overall aim of this evaluation is to estimate the effect of direct certification using Medicaid (DC–M) on meal program access, costs, and participation.
