Food and Nutrition Service

    Title: Evaluation of the Direct Certification with Medicaid for 
Free and Reduced-Priced (DCM-F/RP) Meals Demonstration.
    OMB Control Number: 0584--New.
    Summary of Collection: Section 104 of the Child Nutrition and WIC 
Reauthorization Act of 2004 (Pub. L. 108-265) amended section 9(b) of 
the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act (NSLA) (42 U.S.C. 
1758(b)) to require all local educational agencies that participate in 
the National School Lunch Program and/or the School Breakfast Program 
to establish a system to directly certify as eligible for free school 
meals children who are members of households receiving assistance under 
the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Section 103 of Public 
Law 111-296, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, amended the 
NSLA to authorize the USDA's Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) to 
conduct and evaluate multiyear demonstration projects beginning in July 
2012 in selected States and school districts to test the effectiveness 
of direct certification using income data available in Medicaid 
administrative records to determine eligibility for free school meals. 
In response to these mandates, FNS authorized a demonstration in School 
Year (SY) 2012-2013 for selected States and districts to directly 
certify students for free meals using income data available through 
Medicaid. In SY 2016-2017, FNS initiated a new demonstration where 
selected States will use income data from Medicaid files to identify 
students in households eligible to receive reduced-price meals and 
directly certify them at that level, in addition to directly certifying 
students for free meals. Through the Evaluation of the Direct 
Certification with Medicaid for Free and Reduced-Priced (DCM-F/RP) 
Meals Demonstration, FNS will be able to gather the data needed to 
evaluate the demonstration.
    Need and Use of the Information: This study will gather data from 
State Child Nutrition Agency, State Medicaid Agency, and other State 
Agency staffs, from local school district staffs, and from vendors. FNS 
will use the data to understand how States are implementing the 
demonstration, identify challenges encountered during the 
implementation, and examine the demonstration's effectiveness in 
improving certification and participation outcomes and the implications 
for Federal reimbursement totals and State administrative costs. The 
data will also help FNS to identify best practices that will shape 
future replication and improvement.
    Description of Respondents: State, Local, or Tribal Government; 
Businesses or other for-profit.
    Number of Respondents: 203.
    Frequency of Responses: Reporting: Quarterly, Semi-Annually, and 
Annually.
    Total Burden Hours: 1,174.

Food and Nutrition Service

    Title: Evaluation of the School Meal Data Collection Process.
    OMB Control Number: 0584-NEW.
    Summary of Collection: FNS is conducting a study, the Evaluation of 
the School Meal Data Collection Process, to provide a description and 
evaluation of the methodologies and processes used to collect and 
report program data for the school meal programs via the FNS-10, FNS-
742, and FNS-834 forms. The key research objectives relate to assessing 
how schools/sites, SFAs, and State agencies handle the following three 
functions: Collect/aggregate data, process or validate data, and 
transmit data about the school meal programs. The ultimate objective is 
to understand the likely sources of error within each of these 
functions at each reporting level.
    Need and Use of the Information: The primary purpose of data 
collection is to provide a description and evaluation of the 
methodologies and processes used to collect and report program data via 
the FNS-10, FNS-742, and FNS-834 forms. FNS objective is to understand 
the likely sources of error within each of these functions at each 
reporting level (i.e., school/site to SFA; SFA to State agency; State 
agency to FNS). Evaluation of the processes and identification of 
potential sources of error will culminate in a set of recommended 
practices for improving the process to increase the accuracy of school 
meal program data.
    Description of Respondents: State, Local & Tribal Agencies 
Government.
    Number of Respondents: 298.
    Frequency of Responses: Reporting: Annually.
