In total, nine States accepted at least some supplemental assistance; funding that was not accepted by certain States was reallocated proportionately to the remaining States.

The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP): Allocation of Disaster Supplemental Appropriations

On Jan. 29, 201 3, President Barack Obama signed the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act 2013, providing TEFAP with $6 million in supplemental funding. The Act gives the Secretary authority to provide these funds to the States affected by Hurricane Sandy without regard to the formula normally used to allocate TEFAP entitlement foods and administrative funding among the States. In addition, the Act also gives the Secretary authority to provide the supplemental funding as USDA Foods, administrative funds, or both.
