SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Title: 7 CFR part 210, National School Lunch Program.

OMB Number: 0584-0075, Form Number FNS-13.

Expiration Date: 1/31/2011.

Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection.

Abstract: The Food and Nutrition Service administers the National School Lunch Program, the School Breakfast Program, and the Special Milk Program as mandated by the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act (NSLA), as amended (42 U.S.C. 1751 et seq.), and the Child Nutrition Act of 1966, as amended (42 U.S.C. 1771 et seq.). Information on school program operations is collected from State agencies on a yearly basis to monitor and make adjustments to State agency funding requirements. As provided in 7 CFR 210.17, each school year, State revenues must be appropriated or used specifically by the State for Federal school lunch program purposes. The amount that must be appropriated or used generally is at least 30% of the funds received by the State under Section 4 of the NSLA (42 U.S.C. 1753) during the school year beginning July 1, 1980, unless exemptions or waivers are met, as described in 7 CFR 210.17. FNS uses form FNS-13 to collect data on State revenue matching to meet the reporting required by 7 CFR 210.17(g). The form is an intrinsic part of the accounting system currently being used by the subject programs to ensure proper reimbursement as well as to facilitate adequate recordkeeping. The FNS-13 form is provided to States through a web-based Federal reporting system and 100 percent of the information is collected through electronic means. The instructions on FNS-13 are being updated and this is a minor change that did not increase the burden hours. The burden hours have not changed.
