This final rule incorporates into the WIC program regulations numerous non-discretionary funding provisions mandated in the William F. Goodling Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act of 1998. This rule revises and expands backspend and spendforward authority, conversion of funds, multipurpose/infrastructure grants and the use of food funds for the purchase of breast pumps. The rule also revises nutrition services and administration expenditure standards and expands the timing for the use of vendor and participant collections. The provisions in this rule provide greater flexibility for state agencies in the operation of WIC program relating to funds management.
