Title: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Connection Resource Sharing Form.
OMB Control Number: 0518-0031.
Summary of Collection: In 2008, the Food Stamp Program was renamed the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Food Stamp Nutrition Connection became the SNAP-ED Connection. Date collected using this form helps the SNAP-Ed Connection staff identify nutrition education and training resources for review and inclusion into the SNAP-Ed Connection's Resource Finder Database. State and local SNAP-Ed providers can use this database to identify and acquire existing, available nutrition education materials.
Need and Use of the Information: SNAP-ED Connection staff members use information collected by the Resource Sharing Form to build and constantly enhance the online database of nutrition education and training materials known as the Resource Finder Database. SNAP-Ed providers access and use the database to identify and obtain curricula, lesson plan, research, training tools and participant materials. Vital information about these resources, such as a description of the resource, its creator, publisher and ordering information is collected using the Resource Sharing Form. Failure to collect this information would significantly inhibit SNAP-Ed Connection ability to provide up-to-date information on existing nutrition education materials that are appropriate for SNAP-Ed programs and providers.
Description of Respondents: Not-for-profit institutions; State, Local or Tribal Government.
Number of Respondents: 50.
Frequency of Responses: Reporting: On occasion.
