Final Rule: Disregard of Overpayments in the CACFP, NSLP and SBP

Publication Date
Resource type
Final Rule

This final rule implements a provision of the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004 by creating uniform regulations related to the disregard of overpayments in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), School Breakfast Program (SBP), and Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). As a result, this rule codifies longstanding policy related to the disregard of overpayments in the NSLP and SBP, and revises CACFP regulations by increasing the threshold for the disregard of overpayments determined in management evaluations, reviews or audits in a fiscal year to be consistent with the NSLP and SBP.
