Last Published: 08/30/2017

The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) is proposing to revise Food Stamp Program (FSP) regulations that cover the collection and reporting of racial/ethnic data by State agencies on persons receiving benefits from the FSP. The proposed changes are to comply with new racial/ethnic data collection standards issued by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) while also providing regulatory flexibility and reform for this area of the program regulations.
