Public Notice: Child Nutrition Program 2019 Waiver Request

In April 2019, the USDA Food and Nutrition Service notified state agencies and providers of Child Nutrition Programs steps to seek a waiver of statutory or regulatory program requirements.

As part of the waiver request, state Child Nutrition Programs are required to notify the public.  The Utah Child Nutrition Program is seeking a waiver request for a 5 year cycle instead of a 3 year cycle for of their Administrative Review.

Prior to applying for the waiver, the state office staff met to discuss the upcoming 3-year review cycle and program workload. The state office sent out a survey to current program sponsors to ask for their perspective on the Administrative Review process and feedback on the current 3-year review cycle. The state office quickly received over 89 responses from the 136 sponsors.
