SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Information Collection for the Child and Adult Care Food Program. OMB Number: 0584–0055. Expiration Date: August 31, 2013. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Abstract: Section 17 of the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act (NSLA), as amended, (42 U.S.C. 1766), authorizes the CACFP to provide cash reimbursement and commodity assistance, on a per meal basis, for food service to children in nonresidential child care centers and family day care homes, and to eligible adults in nonresidential adult day care centers. The U.S. Department of Agriculture, through the Food and Nutrition Service, has established application, monitoring and reporting requirements to manage the CACFP effectively. The purpose of this submission to OMB is to obtain approval to continue the discussed information collection. States and service institutions participating in the CACFP will submit to FNS account and record information reflecting their efforts to comply with statutory and regulatory Program requirements. In accordance with 7 CFR 226.7(d), State agencies must submit a monthly Report of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (FNS–44) in order to receive federal reimbursement for meals served to eligible participants. However FNS– 44 is no longer included in this revision as the information is being collected under separate collection (0584–0078). Examples of data collected and reported with this collection include, but are not limited to: applications and supporting documents; records of enrollment; records supporting the free and reduced price eligibility determinations; daily records indicating numbers of program participants in attendance and the number of meals served by type and category; and receipts, invoices and other records of CACFP costs and PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 documentation of non-profit operation of food service. This is a revision of a currently approved collection. This revision made many program adjustments to reporting and record keeping burden hours. These adjustments included: Recalculation of time required to complete existing program tasks in light of advanced technology and process simplification (e.g., application and renewal processes now computerized and completed on line; claims processing now electronic; memos and regulatory updates posted on State agency Web sites; etc.); transfer of certain burden tasks to different collection (e.g., burden associated with Federal/State agreement now collected under State Administrative Expense Funds); reclassification as administrative of tasks previously deemed reporting; and corrections to certain burden tasks (previous burden included administrative burden by error) since last renewal. These changes translated to reduction of number of respondents and reduction in the amount of time it takes to complete a particular task (estimated number of hours per response) and resulted in overall burden change since last renewal. Current OMB inventory for this collection consists of 7,032,960 hours. As a result of program adjustments and reevaluation of existing program tasks, program burden was significantly reduced by 4,799,115 hours since last renewal. The average burden per response and the annual burden hours for reporting and recordkeeping are explained below and summarized in the charts which follow. Affected Public: 56 State agencies, 20,398 Institutions, 166,585 facilities (includes 127,977, family day care homes and 38,608 sponsored center facilities) and 2,178,065 individuals and households. Estimated Number of Respondents: 2,552,143. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 2.138. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 5,456,645. Estimate Time per Response: 0.409355 hrs. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 2,233,706 hrs. Current OMB Inventory for Part 226: 7,032,960 hrs. Difference (change in burden with this renewal): (4,799,115) hrs.

provide cash reimbursement and commodity assistance, on a per meal 
basis, for food service to children in nonresidential child care

application, monitoring and reporting requirements to manage the CACFP 
effectively. The purpose of this submission to OMB is to obtain 
approval to continue the discussed information collection. States and 
service institutions participating in the CACFP will submit to FNS 
account and record information reflecting their efforts to comply with 
statutory and regulatory Program requirements. In accordance with 7 CFR 
226.7(d), State agencies must submit a monthly Report of the Child and 
Adult Care Food Program (FNS-44) in order to receive federal 
reimbursement for meals served to eligible participants. However FNS-44 
is no longer included in this revision as the information is being 
collected under separate collection (0584-0078). Examples of data 
collected and reported with this collection include, but are not 
limited to: applications and supporting documents; records of 
enrollment; records supporting the free and reduced price eligibility 
determinations; daily records indicating numbers of program 
participants in attendance and the number of meals served by type and 
category; and receipts, invoices and other records of CACFP costs and 
documentation of non-profit operation of food service.
    This is a revision of a currently approved collection. This 
revision made many program adjustments to reporting and record keeping 
burden hours. These adjustments included: Recalculation of time 
required to complete existing program tasks in light of advanced 
technology and process simplification (e.g., application and renewal 
processes now computerized and completed on line; claims processing now 
electronic; memos and regulatory updates posted on State agency Web

(e.g., burden associated with Federal/State agreement now collected

administrative of tasks previously deemed reporting; and corrections to 
certain burden tasks (previous burden included administrative burden by 
error) since last renewal. These changes translated to reduction of 
number of respondents and reduction in the amount of time it takes to 
complete a particular task (estimated number of hours per response) and 
resulted in overall burden change since last renewal. Current OMB 
inventory for this collection consists of 7,032,960 hours. As a result 
of program adjustments and reevaluation of existing program tasks, 
program burden was significantly reduced by 4,799,115 hours since last 
renewal. The average burden per response and the annual burden hours 
for reporting and recordkeeping are explained below and summarized in 
the charts which follow.
