In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice invites the general public and other public agencies to comment on this proposed information collection. This collection is a revision of a currently approved information collection for the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which allows for the successful operation of SFSP.

Title: Summer Food Service Program (SFSP)
Form Number: None
OMB Number: 0584-0280
Expiration Date: Aug. 31, 2019
Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection.

Abstract: SFSP is authorized under section 13 of the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act (NSLA) (42 USC 1761). The SFSP is directed toward children in low-income areas when school is not in session and is operated locally by approved sponsors. Local sponsors may include public or private non-profit school food authorities (SFAs), public or private non-profit residential summer camps, units of local, municipal, county or state governments, or other private non-profit organizations that develop a special summer program and provide meal service similar to that available to children during the school year under the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the School Breakfast Program (SBP).

This is a revision of a currently approved collection. It revises the reporting, recordkeeping, and public disclosure burden as a result of adjustments (e.g.,updated number of sponsors of all site types). Current OMB inventory for this collection includes Reporting, Recordkeeping, and Public Disclosure burden that consists of 197,062 hours. As a result of adjustments, the reporting burden decreased from 151,975 to 125,503 hours and recordkeeping burden decreased from 43,758 to 18,620 hours, while the public disclosure burden increased from 1,329 to 1,381 hours. The average burden per response and the annual burden hours for reporting, recordkeeping, and public disclosure are explained below and summarized in the charts which follow.
