Request for Information: Self-Determination Demonstration Project for Tribes that Administer FDPIR

This is a Request for Information to help the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture develop the additional criteria, as authorized in the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, for a self-determination demonstration project related to the purchase of agricultural commodities for the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations. USDA requests feedback from Indian Tribal Organizations and state agencies that administer FDPIR, Tribal leaders and representatives, and Tribal associations.

Final Rule: FDPIR Revisions to the Administrative Match Requirement

Through this rulemaking, the USDA Food and Nutrition Service  is codifying new and revised statutory requirements included in the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 . First, the Department is revising the minimum Federal share of the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) administrative costs and State agency/Indian Tribal Organization (ITO) mandatory administrative match requirement amounts. Second, the Department is revising its administrative match waiver requirements by allowing State agencies and ITOs to qualify for a waiver if the required match share would be a substantial burden. Third, the Department is limiting the reduction of any FDPIR benefits or services to State agencies and ITOs that are granted a full or partial administrative match waiver. Last, the Department is allowing for other Federal funds, if such use is otherwise consistent with both the purpose of the other Federal funds and with the purpose of FDPIR administrative funds, to be used to meet the State agency/ITO administrative match requirement.

Final Rule: FDPIR Resource Limits and Exclusions, and Extended Certification Periods

The Food and Nutrition Service is amending the regulations for the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations with changes that will improve program service, ensure consistency between FDPIR and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, and respond to concerns expressed by the National Association of Food Distribution Programs on Indian Reservations  that the current FDPIR resource limits are insufficient for the target populations and serve as a barrier to participation.
