Letter to CACFP State Directors

Public Law 106-224, the Agricultural Risk Protection Act of 2000 (ARPA), made a significant change to the procedures involved in terminating the participation in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) of an institution or a day care home determined to be seriously deficient. Specifically, these new procedures will require a change in the effective date of the termination and the flow of CACFP funds prior to the termination.
