Final Rule: Child Nutrition Programs - Uniform Federal Assistance Regulations; Nondiscretionary Technical Amendments
This final rule makes technical changes to the regulations governing the National School Lunch Program, the Special Milk Program for Children, the School Breakfast Program, the Summer Food Service Program, the Child and Adult Care Food Program and State Administrative Expense Funds.
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) is revising its grants management regulations to bring these entitlement programs and their funds under the same regulations that already apply to non-entitlement programs, and to identify exceptions to these general rules that apply only to entitlement programs. This final rule is intended to update FNS program regulations, reflecting the revision of USDA's grants management regulations which brought entitlement programs under the same regulations that already applied to non-entitlement programs. In addition, this final rule also revises references to procurement and audit procedures in FNS's program regulations.
