Proposed Rule: CSFP Plain Language, Program Accountability, and Program Flexibility
This proposed rule would rewrite the regulations for the Commodity Supplemental Food Program in “plain language” to help program operators and the general public better understand program requirements. It would also reduce the time and paperwork burden for State and local agencies, increase their flexibility in program operations, and strengthen program accountability. Other changes would be made to incorporate legislative provisions and improve program service and caseload management. The effect of this rule will be to make the Commodity Supplemental Food Program easier to understand and administer, and more effective and efficient in providing benefits to eligible persons.
