Title: Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) Family Day Care Homes Meal Claims Feasibility Study.

OMB Control Number: 0584-NEW.

Summary of Collection: To comply with the Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act (IPERA) of 2010 and the Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Improvement Act of 2012 (IPERIA), the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) needs a reliable methodology to estimate erroneous payments for provider meal claims in the CACFP. The objective of this feasibility study is to design and test a data collection method that enables FNS to estimate erroneous payments due to meals claimed improperly by family day care home providers participating in the CACFP. Specifically, the study focuses on accurately estimating meals that are claimed but not served.

Need and Use of the Information: This study will collect real-time attendance and meal-serving information from participating providers and parents. FNS will use this data to identify and test a data collection method that will accurately estimate erroneous payments due to meals that are claimed improperly by FDCHs participating in the CACFP. FNS needs to collect this information to accurately estimate errors in meal claims in order to fulfill the requirements under the IPERA and the IPERIA to identify and reduce erroneous payments in the CACFP.

Description of Respondents: Individuals or households, Not-for profit institutions, and State, Local, or Tribal Government.

Number of Respondents: 1,038.
