Final Rule

This final rule makes a number of technical changes to the regulations governing the National School Lunch Program, the Special Milk Program for Children, the School Breakfast Program, state administrative expense funds, determining eligibility for free and reduced price meals and free milk in schools.

A number of these changes are a direct result of statutory changes made under the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 1989 (PL 101-147), the Healthy Meals for Healthy Americans Act of 1994 (PL 103-448), the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PL 104-193), and the William F. Goodling Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act of 1998 (PL 105-336). This rule also removes and updates obsolete provisions in these regulations. These amendments are nondiscretionary and technical in nature and will conform these regulations to statutory requirements.
