Type: Federal
Source: U.S Dept. Of Agriculture Food And Nutrition Service National School Lunch Program
Program: DIRECT CERTIFICATION IMPROVEMENT GRANTS
Eligibility: 1. All NSLP State agencies are eligible to apply for Tier 1 Direct Certification Improvement Grants, even if they were awarded grant(s) under the 2010 Direct Certification Grant RFA. However, applications must clearly demonstrate the State’s need for grant funds to enable it to reach and maintain SNAP direct certification rates at the 95 percent level.

2. All NSLP State agencies are eligible to apply for Tier 2 Direct Certification Improvement Grants, even if they were awarded grant(s) under the 2010 Direct Certification Grant RFA. However, State agencies with direct certification rates with SNAP that are already at 95 percent or higher, as reported in the latest Direct Certification Report to Congress, must present a compelling case in their application proposals as to why improvements in their direct certification system or processes are necessary for them to maintain rates at or above the mandated 95 percent benchmark.
Purpose: The Purpose Of The Direct Certification Improvement Grants Described In This RFA Is To Fund State Agency Activities In Planning And Implementing Direct Certification Improvement Projects That Will Help Them Reach And Maintain The Direct Certification Rate Benchmarks Mandated By The HHFKA. Funds May Be Used For:
1. Making Technology Improvements;
2. Providing Technical Assistance To LEAs; Or
3. Implementing New Or Revised State Or LEA Direct Certification Systems.
