Summer Food Service Program State Deadlines for Sponsors
Although it is a federal program, the SFSP is administered at the state level. Federal regulations require that all
sponsor applications be submitted to the state agency by June 15th. States may establish earlier annual
deadlines, but are encouraged to work with sponsors wishing to apply after the state’s earlier deadline. If a
sponsor has already missed the deadline listed below, contact the state agency that administers summer meal
programs to discuss extension options.
