Summer Food Service Program State Deadlines for Sponsors

Resource type
Technical Assistance

Although it is a federal program, the SFSP is administered at the state level. Federal regulations require that all sponsor applications be submitted to the state agency by June 15th. States may establish earlier annual deadlines, but are encouraged to work with sponsors wishing to apply after the state’s earlier deadline. If a sponsor has already missed the deadline listed below, contact the state agency that administers summer meal programs to discuss extension options.
