In order to conform with the statutory mandates of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, DOJ regulations, and USDA regulations on nondiscrimination in federally assisted programs, the USDA's Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) requires state agencies to submit data on the racial/ethnic categories of persons receiving benefits from FNS food assistance programs.

Form FNS-101 is used to collect information annually on the actual number and racial/ethnic designation of households who receive FDPIR. For more information refer to FNS Handbook 501.
