Fiscal Year Operations 2005-2007

In the Nutrition Services Incentive Program (NSIP), the Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration on Aging (AoA) provides a grant to State Agencies on Aging and Indian Tribal Organizations (collectively referred to as SAAs) each year. However, SAAs may choose to receive all or part of their NSIP grant as USDA commodities. Each SAA informs the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) what amount, if any, or what percentage of its total grant, that it wants to allocate for commodity purchases. FNS provides this information to State Distributing Agencies, which submit commodity orders on behalf of the SAAs. State Distributing Agencies must solicit commodity preferences from SAAs before submitting orders.
