Final Rule: FSP Payment of Certain Administrative Costs of State Agencies

Final Rule

This final rule amends Food Stamp Program Regulations to implement a reduction of the Federal reimbursement rate for fraud control, automatic data processing development and Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements costs incurred by state agencies in administering the Food Stamp Program.

These changes are mandated by the Mickey Leland Childhood Hunger Relief Act of 1993. In addition, this rule limits the period that a state agency may retroactively claim Federal funding of administrative costs for Food Stamp Program activities and allows the incremental costs of certifying Temporary Assistance for Needy Families households for food stamps to be charged to the Food Stamp Program for Federal reimbursement purposes.
