CSFP: Allocation of Administrative Funds

Last Published: 04/24/2014

Final Rule. This final rule amends Commodity Supplemental Food Program regulations to implement nondiscretionary provisions of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 affecting the allocation of administrative funds to State agencies. In accordance with that Act, using whatever funds are appropriated for the fiscal year to support the program, and any program funds remaining available from the preceding fiscal year, this rule requires the allocation of an administrative grant per assigned caseload slot, adjusted each year for inflation, to pay State and local agency administrative costs. This method of allocation provides States a specific amount of administrative funds to support each caseload slot assigned. DATES: This rule will become effective on September 29, 2003. The statutory formula for determining the grant per assigned caseload slot for fiscal year 2003 will apply for the entire fiscal year. The formula for fiscal years 2004 through 2007 differs from that for 2003 and will apply to each of those years respectively.
