Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; Comment Request-Enhancing Food Stamp Certification: Food Stamp Modernization Efforts
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice invites the general public and other public agencies to comment on proposed information collections. This notice announces the Food and Nutrition Service's (FNS) intent to request approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for new information collection. The Food and Nutrition Service plans to systematically examine the range of efforts States are undertaking to enhance food stamp certification and modernize the Food Stamp Program (FSP). This review will consist of a qualitative study relying on the responses of State and local food stamp staff, partners, food stamp applicants and participants, and eligible non-participants and a quantitative study using extant data. Information obtained will inform FNS policy discussions, provide technical and procedurally relevant information to States, and provide a comprehensive and centralized source of information for assessing ways to improve food stamp certification and respond efficiently to the variety of stakeholder queries received.
