FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or copies of the information collection form and instructions should be directed to: Patricia N. Daniels, (703) 305–2749. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: WIC Financial Management and Participation Report with Addendum. OMB Number: 0584–0045. Expiration Date: 07–31–2005. Type of Request: Extension of a Currently Approved Collection Form. Abstract: Section 17(f)(4) of the Child Nutrition Act of 1966 (42 U.S.C. 1786(f)(4)) provides that ‘‘State agencies shall submit monthly financial reports and participation data to the Secretary’’ (See also 7 CFR 246.25(b)(1)). The WIC Financial Management and Participation Report with Addendum (FNS–798 and FNS–798A) are the forms State agencies complete to comply with this requirement. FNS and State agencies use the reported information for program monitoring, funds management, budget projections, monitoring caseload, policy development, and responding to requests from Congress and interested parties. In addition, nonentitlement programs, such as the WIC Program, are required to conduct an annual closeout and reconciliation of grants. Departmental regulations at 7 CFR 3016.23(b) require that ‘‘[a] grantee must liquidate all obligations incurred under the award not later than 90 days after the end of the funding period (or as specified in a program regulation) to coincide with the submission of the annual Financial Status Report (SF–269).’’ WIC Program regulations at 7 CFR 246.17(b)(2) instruct State agencies to ‘‘submit to FNS, within 150 days after the end of the fiscal year, final fiscal year closeout reports.’’ The final WIC Financial Management and Participation Report (FNS–798) submitted for the year with its addendum (FNS–798A) are used as a substitute for the SF–269, because they maintain the integrity of WIC’s two grant components (food and nutrition services and administration (NSA)) as well as the four NSA grant components (program management, client services, nutrition education, and breastfeeding promotion and support).
