The purpose of this memorandum is to provide guidance on the use of school and census data to establish area eligibility in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), and the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). In addition, this memorandum consolidates previous guidance and simplifies the area eligibility determination process to reduce administrative burden on State agencies and Program operators. This memorandum also includes guidance on the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) as it relates to area eligibility determinations.
