Title: Child and Adult Care Food Program Regulations.
OMB Number: 0584-0055.
Expiration Date: June 30, 2007.
Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection.
Abstract: The Rule amends the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) regulations to implement section 119(d)(1) of the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004, Public Law 108-265, which stipulates that the agreement between a sponsoring organization and family or group day care home participating in the CACFP is permanent and remains in effect until terminated by either party. This change, which was effective on June 30, 2004, will reduce the administrative workload and paperwork burden of sponsoring organizations, by eliminating the periodic renewal of agreements with their family or group day care homes.
Estimate of Burden: There are currently 966 day care home sponsors in CACFP affected by this .083 reduction in burden hours. The provisions of 7 CFR 226.15(e) reduces the burden for the 966 sponsors of family day care homes. However, the provisions of 7 CFR 226.15(e) do not apply to the remaining 19,615 independent centers and sponsors of day care centers. Those 19,615 centers and sponsors still incur 6.083 hours of burden. Therefore, there is a decrease of 80 hours in the annual burden.
Number of Respondents: 2,980,467 respondents.
Average Number of Responses per Respondent: 2.21 response/respondent.
Total Annual Responses: 6,614,371 responses.
Estimated Time per Response: .87 hour.
Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 5,781,950 burden hours.Start Signature
