Final Rule: CSFP Plain Language, Program Accountability, and Program Flexibility
This final rule rewrites the regulations for the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) in “plain language” to help program operators and the general public better understand program requirements. It also reduces the time and paperwork burden for State and local agencies, increases their flexibility in program operations, and strengthens program accountability. Other changes have been made to incorporate legislative provisions and improve program service and caseload management. This final rule makes the CSFP easier to understand and administer, and more effective and efficient in providing benefits to eligible persons.
