PL 104-193: Changes to Applications for Waivers in the Child Nutrition Programs
PL 104-193, the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, was signed by the President on Aug. 22, 1996. Section 705(f) of that legislation made a number of changes to Section 12(1) of the National School Lunch Act which governs the waiver process in the Child Nutrition Programs. This memorandum identifies the changes made by Public Law 104-193 and provides guidance to be used in developing and submitting waiver requests to the Child Nutrition Division. (This guidance is a revision of the original guidance package issued in April 1995 and contains appropriate excerpts from that material in order to create a single, updated source of information.) We are asking that you make this material available to the State agencies in your region which administer any of the Child Nutrition Programs.
