Letter to CACFP State Directors

The Agricultural Risk Protection Act of 2000 (PL 106-224) made a significant change to the procedures involved in terminating the participation in the Child and Adult Care Food Program of an institution or a day care home determined to be seriously deficient. Specifically, these new procedures will require a change in the effective date of the termination and the flow of CACFP funds prior to the termination.
